Women’s Inter-Church Council of Canada (WICC)

Welcome, one and all! We’re delighted that you dropped in to visit our website.

The Women’s Inter-Church Council of Canada (WICC) is the only national ecumenical council, with representatives from 10 church partners, focusing on four main concerns of social justice, women’s issues, ecumenism, and the growth of women’s spirituality. The Council respects diversity; fosters connections between church and society; creates opportunities for communication, education, advocacy and theological study.

The annual World Day of Prayer and the Fellowship of the Least Coin movement for peace and reconciliation are both coordinated by WICC in Canada.

Through World Day of Prayer grants, WICC supports grassroots work to help women and children both in developing countries and here at home escape the cycle of poverty and violence. The Council also prepares an annual service to mark December 6th Canada’s National Day of Remembrance and Action on Violence against Women.

We choose only those projects which address social justice issues, support women and children and lead to a better future for broken communities. This annual ministry would not be possible without your prayerful support. Thank you.
