Established by Toronto City Council in 1979, the award was named after Constance E. Hamilton who fought for women’s suffrage and was the first woman elected to City of Toronto Council. The award recognizes a resident of Toronto whose actions have had a significant impact on securing equitable treatment for women in Toronto. Toronto City Council commended Ford’ s publications as well as her numerous professional and volunteer initiatives, which champion women’s health.
