100th Aniversary
The first QWI was organized by a woman named Elizabeth Ann Beach in the Eastern Townships, more specifically in Dunham, Quebec, on January 27, 1911. From there, word spread through the province and many counties formed branches with an average of 30 members or more.

Beach's goal in starting the QWI was to teach and inspire women - particularly those living in rural areas, with little access to the information available in larger cities - through reading, writing, painting, art, languages, quilting, child care, nutrition, home economics and teaching.
