Minister Leitch invites Canadians to celebrate International Women’s Day 2015

As Minister of Status of Women, I invite you and all Canadians
to join me in celebrating International Women's Week
from March 2nd to 8th.
Each year, this occasion provides us the opportunity to
celebrate women's achievements and their extraordinary
potential across the country and around the world.
The theme in Canada this year is Strong Women - Strong World -
Improving Economic Opportunities for All.
The theme this year is
Strong Women - Strong World.
It reminds us how important it is that every woman
has the chance to create prosperity for themselves
and their families, whether as employees, professionals,
business leaders or entrepreneurs.
That's why our Government is committed to taking actions
that promote economic opportunities.
During International Women's Week this year,
I invite you to celebrate the outstanding contributions
of women in your family and community
who help make Canada a great place to live,
while inspiring young women and girls to do exactly the same.
When women succeed, Canada succeeds.
What's good for women, is great for the economy,
and that's good for Canada.
Thank you.
