 Our mission is to foster an interest in all matters of public concern to strengthen Canadian unity and to preserve & promote Canadian heritage and history.


A belief in the role higher education can play in leading happy, successful lives, is the impetus for maintaining scholarship programs for those in need.


The power of friendship is something the OWCC has witnessed throughout its existence. We aim to create memories that will last a lifetime.

The President's Message

For the first time in the Ottawa Women’s Canadian Club’s 110-year history, we had to temporarily suspend luncheons due to the global pandemic, Covid-19.
Some expected this would mean a complete shut-down of our Club; instead, the Ottawa Women’s Canadian Club is finding new and innovative ways to stay in touch with our Members and to stay connected within the community until we can meet again.

As an example of this, you are reading this message on our updated website. We are using technology to enable online membership and event ticket purchasing. We are honing our communication techniques to reach out to members who are comfortable with technology while remaining faithful to our members who prefer mailed correspondence. We are taking advantage of this pause in our activities to lay the groundwork for bigger and better luncheons and other events in the future.
While we wait for health officials to authorize large gatherings again, we hope you will continue to visit our website to remain informed about our Club and our plans for the future.

What's New

Kind words from our members.

I could write a book on Canadian Club regarding the importance it has been in my life which in just two months‘ time  will reach 100 years. [ … ]

I have felt my life benefitted from my lengthy association with Canadian Club and friendships that began back in the fifties are still continuing and greatly treasured.
