ABOUT THE WOMENS' CANADIAN CLUB OF WINNIPEG
The Women's Canadian Club of Winnipeg (WCCW) was formed in 1907, by women attending the lecture given by Rudyard Kipling for the (then) men’s Canadian Club of Winnipeg. Its mandate was to promote Canadian identity and national unity. It encouraged interest among women in history and fostered patriotism and the study of contemporary issues. Other projects included publishing W.J. Healy's book, Women of Red River (1923) and its 1967 edition, establishing a library now housed at the University of Manitoba, publishing historical and out-of-print works, donating to heritage preservation, war relief, memorials, and oral histories of settlers.

CENTENNIAL EDUCATIONAL FUND
To mark the 100th anniversary of The Women’s Canadian Club of Winnipeg on November 27, 2007 an Endowment Fund was established at The Winnipeg Foundation. As a result, The Women’s Canadian Club of Winnipeg is able to provide an annual bursary to a student in 3rd year or higher in the field of Canadian Studies at the University of Manitoba. Since the funds are held at The Winnipeg Foundation, the bursary will be available in perpetuity.
Members of the Women’s Canadian Club of Winnipeg volunteer several times a year to help welcome new Citizens to Canada. They serve refreshments and offer congratulations to the people who have chosen to make Canada their own. These new citizens are representative of a wide variety of new immigrants from numerous countries around the world, and help make Canada such a wonderful place to live.
