2021 GFWC Annual Convention
June 26-28, 2021
The 2021 GFWC Annual Convention will take place at the Sheraton Centre Toronto, less than 0.2 of a kilometer or “click” from the striking Toronto City Hall and the PATH underground pedestrian walkway and shopping mall. Toronto, one of the world’s most diverse cities, is the perfect place for Convention given the launch of GFWC’s five new Community Service Program areas: Arts and Culture, Civic Engagement and Outreach, Environment, Education and Libraries, and Health and Wellness.
Registration will open March 1. Check back regularly for updates!

Minnie Bell Johnson
Minnie Bell Johnson is described by her fellow clubwomen as the happiest person they know, with a smile that brightens the whole room. Having just celebrated her 100th birthday, she has many reasons to smile. During her time with the Portland Woman’s Club (Oregon), she has served as both the club treasurer and club president. She’s still an active member to this day, voting on issues and club elections, and participating in projects like handing out personal care products to homeless women at the Rose Haven Women and Children’s Day Shelter.
Success For Survivors Scholarship
Each year, GFWC awards scholarships to help intimate partner abuse survivors obtain a post-secondary education that offers a chance to reshape their future by securing employment and gaining personal independence.
