We Rise Together!

President's Message

May 22, 2024

I always say that BPW is my heart!!  It has always been a great source of advocacy. friendships, camaraderie, networking, support, and service.

Advocacy is our cornerstone and foundation. BPW has been able to advocate for change and see it through. It is important to see the long–term effects and successes of the work that BPW has done locally, Provincially, Federally, and Internationally. With BPW Clubs in 100 countries around the world, it is a strong and powerful sisterhood!

Giving back to the community on a local level has been so rewarding knowing that we are paying it forward and doing our part to help those around us in some small way.

That’s why it’s so important to us to have community partners who really focus on core values that align with BPW and that support our mandate.

Our community partners are:

  • Honeychurch (Women’s Shelter)
  • Louise Community Outreach and Food Bank
  • Hope 24/7
  • Wellspring Chinguacousy
  • Victim Services of Peel

Our local membership is inclusive, not exclusive. We have members who are at the beginning of their careers, midway, and at the sunset of their work lives. Everyone can have a part to play.

Membership in our club provides a platform for women to learn, lead, and support one another. We are always looking for new members so consider joining Brampton Caledon’s Best Kept Secret!

BPW Brampton Caledon has been fundraising since its inception 76 years ago! Over the years, we have done book drives, high teas, garage sales, golf tournaments, meat drives, cookie drives, euchre tournaments, trade shows, etc. We rely on our members and the community to support these endeavours. It is, after all, how we provide sustainability for our club finances and give back to the community.

BPW Brampton Caledon is special! We will continue our work to effect positive change in the world and embrace our members and our community in doing good work.
