Let's Celebrate! IWD 2022 & First Responders

International Women's Day (IWD) celebrates the achievements of women from all walks of life. It's a global celebration begun in 1911 and held each year on March 8th. For IWD 2022, we came together with the first responder organizations of York Region, Ontario, neighbur and many other local community organizations to celebrate all that first responders do to serve and support their communities.

In this SWSCD Winter Roundup, we showcase eight female first responders and learn their professional backstories and how they take care of themselves to be their best when on and off duty. Also, enjoy a few highlight photos from the inaugural York Region Community Open House held to collectively celebrate IWD2022 and first responders. Thank you to everyone who made this day possible and a great success.
