When & Where
Northern Lights Award Foundation
A not for profit corporation lead by a board of directors. Established in 2009 to recognize Canadian women in all fields of aviation and aerospace. Through fundraising and awareness events throughout the year that build to our annual awards gala, our goal is to motivate and encourage more young ladies and women to consider careers in these industries. That there are many opportunities waiting for them. That they are just as capable of being part of these inidustries as any other. The women we recognize annually, through a nomination process, show the wide diversity of talents and successful career achievements they worked hard to obtain, while loving what they do.
