Look Back

YWCA’s Think Big. Look Back. Start Small. is a great way for young women to celebrate Canada’s sesquicentennial in a way that is meaningful to them.

YWCA’s newest project will give young women in 15 communities across Canada an opportunity to work together in groups to coordinate events and activities that celebrate women who have built Canada.

YWCA’s celebrations will reflect a full picture of Canadian history, giving young women tools and experiences that inform their ability to lead and think critically as they plan celebrations that honour women who were community leaders, trailblazers, door openers, artists and activists.

Through this project young women will explore the arts, culture, history and heritage that is alive in their communities.

Events will take place throughout the month of March. Check the timeline for events happening near you.

This project has been funded by Canadian Heritage.
