AIM

The aim of the Council of Women is to work for the betterment of conditions pertaining to women, family, community and society.

Members try to accomplish this through interest and action in such areas as economics, education, health, environment, housing, justice, status of women, social development and seniors’ issues.

OUR WORK

The Provincial Council of Women of Ontario was formed in 1923 and carries concerns of women in the province to the Ontario Provincial Government.

Members identify emerging issues during the year and prepare resolutions to be voted on by the membership, using Parliamentary Procedures, at the Annual General Meeting.

Resolutions passed by the membership culminate in a Brief which is submitted and discussed with legislators at Queen’s Park each fall.

Throughout the year, the PCWO President writes policy request letters to various Ministers and the Premier, as well as making presentations to government representatives.
