The Women’s Canadian Club has been a vibrant part of the Montreal community since 1907. Its purpose is to foster an interest in all matters of public concern in order to strengthen Canadian unity and identity. Members enjoy monthly Tuesday presentations and special events including luncheons and tours. This year the club moved to its new location at Victoria Hall where it continues to offer an opportunity to women to hear interesting speakers while enjoying a light lunch.
The first special event, a bridge and luncheon fundraiser, will be held on Tuesday, February 14. Tickets are $40 and will be available at the presentation on Tuesday.
The luncheon will be in support of Encounters with Canada, a unique opportunity for Canadian teens to meet other young people from across
the country while spending an adventure-filled week in the nation’s capital. Each year the club sponsors several girls to attend the week-long experience meant to both educate and inspire.
