Editors Note: A photo and a video are included with this press release.

Canada's number one beauty and fashion event, the MISS WORLD CANADA Contest, comes to its exciting conclusion on Saturday, March 15 in downtown Toronto at the St. Laurence Centre for the Arts.

45 young women from coast to coast are in Toronto competing for thousands of dollars in cash and prizes, along with the right to represent Canada at the world's biggest beauty extravaganza, the MISS WORLD Pageant. 120 countries are expected to take part in the 58th edition MISS WORLD finals in Kiev, Ukraine in October.

Will 2008 be the year Canada finally brings home the crown?

The MISS WORLD CANADA Contest motto of "Beauty with a Purpose" is an integral part of the MISS WORLD philosophy. Raising funds for children's charities across the globe is the major responsibility of the international MISS WORLD titleholder. The MISS WORLD CANADA Contest has partnered with S.O.S. CHILDREN'S VILLAGES, a non-profit, global charitable organization whose goal is to improve and empower children in the Third World. All 45 of the MISS WORLD CANADA National Finalists fundraised for S.O.S. CHILDREN'S VILLAGES for up to six months prior to the event and together raised over $11,000.00 for this worthy cause, proving that "Beauty with a Purpose" is alive and well in communities across the country.

The MISS WORLD CANADA Contest culminates in a spectacular live show, featuring all 45 National Finalists competing in interviews, glamorous evening wear and beautiful POINT ZERO OCEAN swimwear. The final 15 contestants will be revealed in Saturday's show, and after a grueling competition, the new MISS WORLD CANADA will be crowned.

Limited tickets are available for the MISS WORLD CANADA Contest finals on Saturday, March 15, 2008 at the Jane Mallett Theatre, St. Laurence Centre for the Arts, 27 Front Street East, Toronto. Miss World Canada contestants and the whole crew at MWC Inc. are grateful to Houston's Steakhouse for their awesome hospitality over the course of this past week and to 1 King West for their continued support.
