When 23 men met in Charlottetown PEI in 1864, their collective thinking and visioning ultimately led to the formation of Canada.
We wanted to know, what would 23 women envision for our country for the next 150 years?
Selected from more than 200 nominees, 23 aspiring and established leaders contributed to an anthology, participated in a Women’s Leadership Conference and collaborated on a shared vision for Canada’s future.
The 23 women who were selected from across Canada for their accomplishments and leadership met in Charlottetown on September 26, 2014 to develop a shared vision for the future of Canada.
“We are people of the present, learning from the past while trying to impact the future.”
– Dr. Roberta Bondar, from the Foreword
With audacious imagination, with seriousness and hope, the 23 diverse women visionaries set forth their visions for the next 150 years and include peace, reconciliation, justice, equality, solidarity, community, collaboration, good governance, and more.
