Today we honour and thank our Canadian Women Physicians.

Celebrated for the first time on March 11, 2021 with the generous support of Canadian Women in Medicine. March 11 was the date of licensure of Dr. Jennie Trout, the first woman licensed to practice medicine in Canada.

Canadian Women Physicians’ Day (CWPD) was created by Dr. Liana Hwang, a family doctor at Canmore General Hospital and Foothills Medical Centre in Alberta.

CWPD is a way to remember the amazing women who paved the way and to celebrate those who are making a difference today.
