President’s Message

Greetings from WICC!

WICC is best known for World Day of Prayer, but we are so much more than this remarkable annual prayer event.

WICC connects Christian women across Canada who have a passion for justice who seek to restore hope to women whose lives have been touched by injustice.

We don’t do it alone. Called and inspired by the God who loves justice (Isaiah 61:8), we partner with Christian churches, organizations and individuals who believe that it’s possible to change the world.

We are not new at this. As Canada’s oldest and largest interdenominational organization, we are nearing our 100th anniversary in 2018. It’s not too late for you to join the movement!


  • On this website, you will find information on our two main prayer and justice programs, the World Day of Prayer and the Fellowship of the Least Coin. Learn how we are supporting indigenous women through our Awakening Check out our resources to help you grow in understanding how we have responded to injustice in the past and continue to address issues in the present.
  • Join our Facebook family where you can keep current on justice issues and be inspired by the many ways women are making a difference.
  • Subscribe to our digital newsletter e-connect that will be delivered to your email box several times a year.


  • Use the Donate Online button to contribute financially to our ministry. You can also mail in your contribution. Everyone who contributes $25 or more will automatically receive our publication Riding the Waves which provides in-depth articles, Bible studies, book reviews and stories of World Day of Prayer grant recipients.


  • WICC began as a prayer movement of Christian women and prayer continues to be essential to our work.


I hope you will join us so that “justice will roll on like a river” (Amos 5:24) in our country and around the world!
