About the WXN Canada’s Most Powerful Women: Top 100 Awards
When the Canada’s Most Powerful Women: Top 100 Awards was launched in 2003, we wanted to shine a spotlight on the incredible accomplishments of professional women across Canada in a way that would both recognize talented leaders and inspire others—the next generation, their peers and themselves—to push the boundaries of what’s possible even further. Since then, WXN has celebrated the accomplishments of 939 remarkable women through the Awards. Each year, we are proud to host four Top 100 Celebrations across the country in Toronto, Vancouver, Calgary and Montreal. Each Top 100 Regional Celebration is comprised of two events: a Leadership Summit and Awards.
