Bouchier Group has committed to funding Girls Inc. of Northern Alberta's Women of Inspiration program, recognizing excellence in female leadership in Wood Buffalo.

Every year for the next five years, Bouchier Group will contribute $25,000, for a total of $125,000, a continuance of Bouchier's 10-year working relationship with Girls. Inc. where they have supported various programs, events, and vehicle donations.  

“We are so excited to partner with Girls Inc. on this fantastic, long-standing and successful community program,”  says Nicole Bourque-Bouchier, co-owner of Bouchier Group. “As a business owner, and at a personal level, I am committed to inspiring and supporting our culture and communities, and that includes all the women of Northern Alberta.”  

And Girls Inc. is just as excited. “We are thrilled about our partnership,” says Nanase Tonda, Executive Director of Girls Inc. of Northern Alberta. “Bouchier’s community investment strategic priority around women’s/girls’ empowerment aligns beautifully with the philosophy of Girls Inc. and their commitment with this program specifically will allow us to continue to recognize the women in our region making a difference.” 

Girls Inc. is a non-profit organization with a mission to inspire all girls to be strong, smart, and bold. The Women of Inspiration program has been running for seven years in the Wood Buffalo region with 72 recipients being honoured to date. The program is designed to recognize 12 local women per year who inspire all girls to be strong, smart and bold and aims to show local girls positive role models who live right here and are making an impact on the region.   

“As a woman in business, and former recipient of the Women of Inspiration award, I am proud to support Girls Inc. of Northern Alberta,”  says Bourque Bouchier. “As Girls Inc. says, ‘You can’t be what you can’t see’, so it is a great honour for me to stand alongside these exceptional young girls and women.”
