BPW Canada Events

BPW Canada holds a National Convention every 2 years, on even-numbered years (e.g. 2000, 2002, 2004). A National AGM is held in the alternating odd-numbered years (e.g. 2001, 2003, 2005). Both events are usually held in the late summer.

"In 2020, the global community will mark the twenty-fifth anniversary of the Fourth World Conference on Women and adoption of the Beijing Declaration and Platform for Action (1995). A five-year milestone will be reached towards achieving the Sustainable Development Goals of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development. 2020 is therefore a pivotal year for the accelerated realization of gender equality and the empowerment of all women and girls, everywhere." ~ Source
