The Ontario Heritage Trust and the Women’s Law Association of Ontario (WLAO) recently unveiled a provincial plaque to celebrate the latter’s 100 years of advocacy and empowerment.
The work is permanently installed in the South Gardens at Osgoode Hall in Toronto, with text in English and French.
“Through their extraordinary work over the last 100 years, the WLAO has done the difficult but essential work of ensuring the law works for us all, through fighting for equality, calling for reforms, and working to eliminate discrimination in all its forms,” said Ontario Heritage Trust’s chair, Harvey McCue. “The Trust is pleased to recognize the WLAO’s work with this provincial plaque and looks forward to many more years of leadership from the organization.”
Since 1956, 1285 of the Trust’s provincial plaques have been unveiled, commemorating significant people, places, and events in Ontario’s history. Further, the Trust has unveiled 51 plaques explicitly marking the contributions of women to the heritage of Ontario.
