Ottawa- Mark Strahl, MP for Chilliwack-Fraser Canyon, is encouraging local residents to nominate outstanding Canadians for the Governor General's Awards in Commemoration of the Persons Case.

"The award recognizes Canadians who have made outstanding contributions to advance the equality, rights or opportunities of women. We're looking for another Dr. Jean Scott," said Strahl referring to local author, women's right activist and 1990 recipient.

The Governor General's Awards in Commemoration of the Persons Case were created in 1979 to mark the 50th Anniversary of the groundbreaking Persons Case which made it possible for women to serve in the Senate and paved the way for women's increased participation in public and political life.

Each year, five recipients are chosen from across Canada. In 2012, two of those recipients will be from the youth category (15-30 years old). This is in recognition of the world's first International Day of the Girl which will take place on October 11, 2012.

The deadline for nominations is July 15. Recipients will be invited to Rideau Hall in October to receive a medal from his Excellency the Right Honourable David Johnston, Governor General of Canada.

For more information about the awards and for full instructions, please visit the Status of Women Canada website at: www.women.gc.ca, email: communications [at] swc-cfc [dot] gc [dot] ca or call: 1-855-969-9922.
