Community Service, Advocacy, Education and Social Networking.  As a branch of the Federated Women's Institutes of Ontario, a not-for-profit, charitable organization, working with and for women in urban, rural and small town Ontario, we offer education programming and community support; advocate for social, environmental and economic change,and work towards the personal growth of all women, for home and country.  We envision an Ontario where women work together for safe, healthy communities and pursue an enriched and balanced lifestyle.  We are a non-partisan, non-sectarian and non-racial organization.  For more information, please contact us or come out and join us for an interesting evening of fun and social interaction.
