The Ottawa Women's Canadian Club (100+ Years Young)

The Ottawa Women’s Canadian Club started in 1910 when a group of women wanted to be more active and better informed Canadians. They met at luncheons to hear distinguished Canadians or speakers from other countries speak on issues of national or international importance.

Today the Ottawa Women’s Canadian Club allows everyone to feel welcome and enjoy the speaker and each other’s company at the luncheons that are held September to May each year. Please join us- this is your opportunity to hear outstanding speakers, meet many interesting people, and participate in a Canadian institution that has stood the test of time.
