The inaugural edition of the Miss Uganda – Canada beauty pageant has been launched.

Organised by BigSeal Foundation in partnership with the Miss Uganda Foundation and Uganda High Commission in Canada, the pageant is aimed at celebrating and empowering Ugandan women domiciled in Canada through appreciating their beauty and different talents.

“The Ugandan community in Canada has not been given due attention with other pageants like the Miss Uganda North America,” Kyobe Jack, a representative from the BigSeal Foundation explained. “We want to exhaust all the Ugandan communities and will  be traversing all the provinces in Canada.”

The beauty pageant auditions will take place in the four provinces of Canada, kicking off on 6th June in Ottawa, then 13th June in Toronto, 20th June in Vancouver and 27th June in Edmonton. They will culminate into a grand finale on 4th July in Toronto where the Miss Uganda – Canada beauty queen will be crowned.

While speaking to media on Wednesday, Brenda Nanyonjo, the CEO Miss Uganda Foundation revealed that their partnership with the BigSeal Foundation comes as part of their efforts to build relationships with other pageants in the diaspora.

“The Miss Uganda franchise under Kezi Entertainment is celebrating 10 years this year and this partnership is very timely as we are now trying to build relationships with the diaspora community,” said Brenda Nanyonjo, the CEO Miss Uganda Foundation . “Our role in the Miss Uganda-Canada pageant will be to mentor the beauty queens and readying them for the big stage.”

The top three finalists will go on to participate in the Miss Canada and Miss Uganda–North America pageants.

They will also be involved in different charity projects in Uganda through the “Beauty with a Purpose” initiative by Quin Abenakyo, a former Miss Uganda and Miss World Africa.
