The Ottawa Women's Canadian Club


a day to look forward to

Be part of a long-standing tradition in Ottawa.

All luncheons are held at the Château Laurier Hotel where fine dining and impeccable service are de rigueur. These events are centered around invited speakers who embody Canadian values and deliver inspirational speeches. Enjoy a sit-down, silver-service, three-course lunch of favourites like Celeriac Salad, Lemon Parmesan Chicken, and Flourless Chocolate Cake.  Be sure to wear your fascinator to the Spring High Tea.
