Connecting Women. Inspiring Change.


Our Mission

BPW develops the business, professional and leadership potential of women on all levels through advocacy, education, mentoring, networking, skill-building, and economic empowerment programs and projects around the world.

Our Vision

To achieve a just and equal status of women at all levels and areas of society where decisions are taken in true partnership with men, based on mutual respect, for a more balanced and peaceful world.

Advocating for Women’s Equality Since 1932

BPW is a non-sectarian, non-profit, non-partisan organization that works to improve economic, political, social, and employment conditions for women.

BPW Ontario is an association of “BPW” clubs across Ontario and was founded in 1932. Each Ontario Club member enjoys membership in BPW Canada, which is a member of BPW International.  There are BPW Clubs in more than 95 countries and BPW has Consultative Status at the United Nations.

Joining a local BPW club connects women to an international network of women working for equality and change.  Local clubs hold a variety of events that include guest speakers, socializing and networking, fundraising, and more.  Everything clubs do is working toward the four cornerstones – learn, advocate, lead, and collaborate.

BPW 4 Cornerstones

No matter the activities, each club brings women together to improve the lives of girls and women, locally and around the world.

You can expect lively discussion, lots of learning, and being able to participate in change in a way that works for you.  Reach out to a local club to find out more or contact BPW Ontario.
