British Columbia Women’s Institute is one of the greatest educational tools available to all women.
What other organization is so diversified. BCWI supports women locally, provincially, and federally as well as world-wide. Branches can be found throughout the Province from Vancouver Island to the Peace River. Members are concerned about buying local thus preserving our agriculture land for food sustainability. Since 1990, BCWI has presented over 50 resolutions to the provincial and or federal governments regarding issues related to health, environment, social welfare, agriculture, education and citizenship plus internationally by presenting a resolution at Associated Country Women of the World requesting all governments be responsible for registering children at birth.
Besides this, the members support their communities by: organizing local events, teaching home skills, raising funds for BC Children’s Hospital and Children’s Health Foundation of Vancouver Island (formerly Queen Alexander Hospital), donating home-made items to hospitals, transition houses and families in need. This is just the tip of the iceberg; there is so much more that BCWI members do for their communities. For more information, check www.bcwi.ca.
