International Women’s Day


March 8th was International Women’s Day. A celebration was held at City Hall to honour women from around the world including a special presentation from guest ambassadors from England, France, and Germany.

Joined by many Stittsville residents, it was a pleasure to be in attendance at the event to help celebrate all women in our communities, cities, and across the globe who actively work to create a stronger, more inclusive world for all.

Did you know? The first street light in Stittsville was set up by the Women’s Institute almost 100 years ago. A lot has changed in the world as well as on Stittsville Main Street since that time. Would you be able to tell that this was the same location in both photos?
