Welcome to Brant County's Newest Women's Institute.
We are a group of local women and we invite you to join us in the creation of a NEW brand of W.I. in Brant County. We meet the second Thursday of the month (between September and June) usually at the Paris Fairgrounds. Please check the calendar of events for specific venue details. There are some events during the summer. Check the Events page for updates. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
Women’s Institute, known affectionately as “W.I.” is experiencing an urban resurgence in the UK as younger women join the organization and rebrand the historic movement as "Women Inspired”. The international movement, begun by Adelaide Hoodless in Ontario, Canada in 1897, has long had it emphasis on group education, community action, as well as crafts and recipes.
Today’s women are multitasking like never before, and so W.I. is adapting to meet the demands of a modern lifestyle. We offer hands-on and creative learning, while improving the lives of families and our communities in a fun way. W.I. is about the individual. It is what you want it to be; for yourself, your community and the type of world you want to live in. W.I. is having fun and doing good at the same time.
