The Catholic Women’s League of Canada is a national organization rooted in gospel values calling its members to holiness through service to the people of God.
The C.W.L. was formed in 1920 and today has near 100,000 members throughout Canada. We are also involved internationally through our membership in the World Union of Catholic Women's Organizations.
Members direct their work to the preservation of christian family life values; the sanctity of life, the promotion of Catholic education and affordable health services. We uphold human dignity by working to make life better for all people, especially the disadvantaged. We believe that women have an important role to play in church and society.
We are one of the few organizations that present resolutions to the government each year. Resolutions are one of the vehiclesused by members to influence governments to effect change in order to build a better society.
