  • When you have some rare down time, do you find yourself checking your Facebook feed? Well, great news! Building on the success of Facebook pages started by Toronto, Montreal, and Atlantic, we’re pleased to announce a single, national IWF Facebook group.

    This informal way to connect has three goals: to celebrate successes and news of our members across Canada, to share news and information that is in keeping with the objectives and values of IWFC, and to build more opportunities for networking and sharing. The page will be interactive and open to all members, with administrators from every chapter encouraged to share local news.

    The sign-up process is simple: use this link https://www.facebook.com/groups/705327026291802/ to join. You may also simply search for the IWFC group in the Facebook search field.  Invite your IWFC friends to join too.  Looking forward to seeing you online!

  • World Leadership Conference  "OPEN MINDS" November 13-15, 2019 in Toronto

    Register now and help us set a National attendance record!

    IWF Canada’s goal is to have the highest number of members from all chapters attend our Conference. Registrations were opened last week and more than 300 members from 53 forums around the world have already registered! The theme “Open Minds” has definitely struck a chord with women leaders from around the world. Some of the "Behind the Scenes" are already full, so in order to avoid disappointment, you should register early.

    To make reaching our National registration goal fun and competitive, we have an exciting contest to announce: The chapter with the highest percentage of member registrations will win an extraordinary gift from Cabot Links--a two-night stay and eight rounds of golf in one of the World’s Top Courses nestled on the coast of Cape Breton, N.S. A $7,000 value! Check out the Cabot Links website HERE.  Thanks to the Atlantic Chapter for securing this superb incentive!

    The winning Canadian chapter can auction the prize off, with the funds to be used at the chapter’s discretion. We will provide a regular tally of member registrations per chapter. So go ahead and register now HERE!

    To get involved in any other way, don’t hesitate to contact Sharon EMAIL or Lisa EMAIL. Working together as Canadian members, we will make this World Leadership Conference outstanding!

  • It is hard to believe that my four years as Vice President and President has come to an end. I will remain actively engaged through the balance of the year turning more personal time and attention to helping our Conference co-chairs where needed. I leave our membership in the very, very capable hands  of Françoise Lyon, who has been serving as Vice President with me during my tenure. So many of you know Françoise and her commitment to all aspects of IWF at the Montreal Chapter level having served at that Chapter’s Chair, on the Global Board as the Chair of the Fellows Foundation and in her role on the National Board. It has been an honor to serve our membership and be a part of a Board transformation that has produced a compelling strategic plan that helps to execute our IWFC mission: Thank you all for the support over these years. -- Ellen
