WI 125

In 2022, the Women's Institute will reach a milestone - 125 years from it’s beginning at the home of Janet and Erland Lee in Stoney Creek, Ontario. This is a wonderful opportunity to recognize and promote WI across Canada and it will be upon us before we know it!

Timeline to a successful event is as follows:

Get Ready 2019 – 2020

All Branches, District, and/or Areas should be discussing and deciding on what sort of event/celebration they want.

  • Form a committee

  • It will/may be necessary to book early for your space & date if you have a particular location in mind.

  • Possibilities are unlimited depending on the members' choices: Flag raising & local declaration of WI week in your municipality, tree planting, special educational sessions about WI’s local contributions, displays in a storefront, a special fundraising project for your local community……. are just a few ideas.

Bottom line – this is a great time to have a party and let your communities know we are a fun group!

Get Set- 2020-2021

  • If you haven’t done so, book your venue.

  • Plan your promotion.

  • Seek out sponsors.

  • Work on projects as needed.

  • Make final preparations.


  • Start the celebrations!

We look forward to getting updates from your Provincial Representatives throughout the next couple of years.
