About the Award
The Canadian Council for Aboriginal Business (CCAB) is proud to present the Indigenous Women in Leadership Award.
The role of Indigenous women in traditional life has long been one of leadership and strength. The tenacity and determination of our Indigenous women stands as a powerful testament to their role in preserving our traditions and culture. Through changing economic and political landscapes since the arrival of the new peoples on the shores of Turtle Island their leadership has proudly lead the way.
CCAB celebrates successful, accomplished, committed Indigenous women with an award that serves as not only a national recognition but as a platform to the future. A future where Indigenous women take their rightful place at the table among men and women of all cultures in true celebration of lives well lived from tradition to academia, family to prosperity they continue to lead the way.
CCAB encourages nominations from all First Nations (Status and Non-Status), Inuit and Métis business, political and nationally engaged women whose work has changed the lives of people in their communities and nationally.
Anyone 18 years of age and older is eligible to submit a nomination.
