The NCWC Education Fund was founded as a charitable organization in order to work with the National Council of Women of Canada through research and public education regarding the environmental, social, mental, physical and health needs of women, families and society.  See information in the section below called Joint Projects which provide details about our projects on Mental Health, Water and Energy, and Celebrating Women.

Working together through joint Common Programs, the NCWC and NCWC Education Fund have explored an amazing variety of important topics and tapped into a wealth of internal and external expertise as we conducted the following programs.  The NCWC Education fund works closely with the NCWC, which represents over 750,000 Canadians through its 10 Nationally Organized Affiliated Societies, Provincial Councils in 6 Provinces and 12 Local Councils of Women.  Joint research has been done and public education programs held over the past 12 years on:
