This site is dedicated to showcasing Canadian
women in design who lead and inspire.

Over the past 6 months we have been staggered by the amazing community response to our call for nominations of potential Canadian Women designers to interview.

We would like to express our gratitude, to those who we've interviewed, for sharing their experiences, wisdom, and precious time.
