The Montreal Council of Women is a member of the National Council of Women (NCWC). The National Council of Women of Canada (NCWC) was founded on October 27,1893, at a public meeting in Toronto, chaired by Lady Aberdeen, wife of the Governor-General of Canada and attended by 1500 women. Since its founding in 1893, the National Council of Women of Canada, one of Canada's oldest women's organizations, has played a leading role in reaching many of the milestones in Canadian social history. In 2005, the New Governor General Michelle Jean, following a lengthy tradition dating back to the late 19th century, became Honorary President of NCWC. The National Council of Women of Canada is one of 64 affiliates of the International Council of Women, which has Category 1 Consultative Status at the United Nations (ECOSOC). MCW is one of NCWC's Local Councils and is a voting Body of the NCWC. We receive a weighted vote of 10, through either the Council President or her designate of NCWC.
