✔Women’s Institute is 125 years old in Canada this year, and has been operating in PEI for over 110 years while consisting of grassroots Islanders – and even has a member serving women worldwide in a consultation capacity with the United Nations.
✨WI members are all ages, cultures, and yes as rumored, they sure do make the greatest jam, biscuits and quilts, all while still volunteering locally or across the globe in so many capacities. In asking one member what she would like to include, she replied “PEI Women’s Institutes are the golden threads woven together in our communities that make our Island culture such a welcoming, caring, and sustainable culture”.
