Women' Canadian Club of Winnipeg
wccw banner


The Women’s Canadian Club of Winnipeg celebrated its 100th anniversary on November 29, 2007. From its humble beginnings as an answer to the popular Canadian Clubs that admitted only men to their luncheons, The Women’s Canadian Club of Winnipeg has survived and adjusted to the social changes that have occurred through the years. In spite of the distractions from television, sports activities, and many associations that take up people’s time, The Women’s Canadian Club of Winnipeg has remained relevant and important to its members. Members have the common objective of promoting and taking pride in being Canadian. They gather once a month from September until May to enjoy a luncheon followed by a speaker whose topic educates and at the same time entertains. The Club welcomes men as guests and as members. Reciprocal arrangements exist with the Canadian Club of Winnipeg - our members are welcome at their events also.

‘For Elise’

History, and our interpretation of it, is constantly changing. In For Elise, the established story of one pioneering family’s battle to survive has been reviewed from the perspective of a rarely considered woman.
