As we excitedly moved into the final stages of preparation for the inaugural WILL Awards Ontario Gala, it became clear that the fourth wave of COVID-19 has disrupted our lives and plans more than we expected. Our priority is to ensure a safe environment for all our attendees as well as to enjoy an exceptional celebratory evening.  With that in mind, we have made the difficult decision to postpone the event to Fall 2022. Please save the date for October 24th, 2022, at The Ritz-Carlton.


Join special guests and past Women in Law Leadership winners,
The Honourable Rosalie Silberman Abella and The Honourable Sheilah L. Martin
for an intimate, thought provoking and lively discussion.


Women in Law Leadership is also proud to launch the Justice Rosalie Abella Award at the event.




The fundamental principles behind the WILL Awards is to celebrate the advancement and achievements of women lawyers, particularly as it relates to inclusion and diversity. A Canada non-for-profit organization guided by an Advisory Board of prominent and legal elite women, the Women in Law Leadership Awards recognizes leadership while fostering a diverse and inclusive environment for women lawyers.

The awards will attract top legal professionals in private practice, in house counsel and broader legal roles.
