Most Influential Women List

CAAWS publishes its Most Influential Women List annually to celebrate and highlight Canadian women who are game changers - women who influenced sport and physical activity in Canada and on the international scene.

The final list is compiled by a CAAWS selection panel, from both public nominations and from contributions from knowledgeable sport and physical activity leaders. The panel reviewed the submissions and based its decision on accomplishment and scope of activities in that calendar year. Past Lists can be found at http://www.caaws.ca/influentialwomen/e/past_lists.htm

Nominate an Influential Woman!
You can publicly recognize and honour an influential woman by nominating her to CAAWS’ Most Influential Women List for 2013.

Nominate one or several women who were influential on the national or international stage in 2013 in sport or physical activity. Nomination process is open.
