The raison d’être of Femmes remarquables Ottawa Distinguished Women is to create a historical record and acknowledgement of those local women who have made significant contributions to our communities and our City; AND, we want you to be part of this journey of discovery by nominating deserving women!

Not all nominees have to be well-known and many are unsung heroines whose contributions are genuinely making a difference to their communities and, in turn, to Ottawa as a whole. Some may have moved away and others are now deceased, yet their legacies have impacted our lives and made us a better Ottawa.

There are many of these notable women, so please nominate them and remember that we are here to answer any of your questions and/or provide assistance.
