WI Triennial Meeting

21st Triennial Convention

The 21st National Federated Women’s Institutes of Canada Convention was held at the Fort Garry Hotel and Conference Centre, in Winnipeg, Manitoba. Convention attendees were warmly welcomed by our hosts, the Manitoba Women’s Institute on July 12 followed by four days of wonderful programs and speakers.

Attendees were continuously ‘inspired’ throughout the convention from the outstanding speakers, panel sessions, a tour of the National Human Rights Museum at the Forks, to a showcase of multi-cultural, ethnic and generational entertainment and networking opportunities. Through all of these activities, many friendships were re-kindled and new ones formed.

Thank you to the Manitoba Convention Committee members, led by Joan Clement and Lynne Hopley, who worked tirelessly planning a wonderful event that highlighted our theme of ‘Women Inspired to Make Change Count’.

Additional Highlights of the 2018 Convention:

  • Outstanding speakers from Keynote Speaker, Brenda Shoepp who travels the world to work with women to empower themselves to grow food, protect environments and secure financial independence for themselves, their families and their communities to three outstanding young women

  • A showcase of local Manitoba talent from aboriginal hoop dancing to a local band called JD & the Sunshine Band, who are a group of individuals who have turned their lives around

  • During the closing ceremonies, the 2019 FWIC 100th Anniversary Celebrations were kicked off and new WI Canada flags were distributed to the provinces

  • Provincial President, Delores Jones with all the NLWI attendees invited everyone to the next Convention to be held on ‘the rock’ (of course, Newfoundland) in 2021
