International Council of Women (ICW)
NCWC is a national affiliate member of the International Council of Women (ICW-CIF). NCWC joined ICW officially in 1897, and has remained an active and involved member ever since. Over the years, many members of NCWC have served on the ICW Board of Directors and as Conveners of ICW Standing Study Committees. ICW had been founded a few years earlier, in 1888, at a meeting in Washington, D.C.
The idea of a Canadian Council was developed at the ICW World’s Congress of Representative Women, meeting in Chicago in May 1893. A group of women attending from the Dominion of Canada took the opportunity to form a provisional executive for the possibility of a new Canadian Council.
ICW represents the National Councils of Women in more than 70 countries, and of the Regional Council of the Americas, which represents National Councils of Women in the Western Hemisphere. It has Consultative Status (Category I) at the United Nations Economic and Social Council (ECOSOC).
