Miss Pakistan World is a beauty pageant for women of Pakistani origin held in Mississauga, Ontario. Its contestants are women with mostly Pakistani heritage from Pakistan, the United States, Canada and the United Kingdom. The winner represents Pakistan in Miss Earth pageant and other events.
Founded in 2002 by Toronto entrepreneur Sonia Ahmed, and in its first year called "Miss Canada Pakistan", the contest is held in Canada because beauty pageants are highly controversial in Pakistan and if it were held there, security for contestants would be too problematic. According to Ahmed, "Pakistan's slow changing movement to liberate its women forbids such events from taking place on its soil." The name of the pageant was changed to Miss Pakistan World, when contestants from around the world started applying for the title. It is the only pageant existing for single Pakistani women.
