Women's Institute

The Movement

The movement was formed in Canada 90 years ago as a democratic vehicle to support women in isolated communities, to educate and pass on knowledge about childcare, catering and household skills. The W.I. has led the fight for a cleaner fairer world, from global warming to health and social issues and the W.I. is still campaigning locally and nationally over issues that affect us all.
