The women included in the 2022 100 Accomplished Black Canadian Women were selected based on their efforts to support Black girls and women, their leadership or their participation in organizations and groups working for the advancement of Black women and girls. The book is available for pre-order through the 100 Accomplished Black Canadian Women website.
