Governor’s Message

Welcome to Soroptimist of Western Canada. Here you will find like -minded women whose hearts are with other women to help them be their best. Here you will find an organization that promotes gender equality, empowerment, education and diversity. We are women of the world working hard to help all women around the globe improve their lives through programs leading to social and economic empowerment.
It is my greatest honor to have been elected Governor of this region of Soroptimist International of the Americas. With local clubs throughout Western Canada you are sure to find a club to call home. Without the participation of our community members and leaders, many women would not have the opportunity for social and economic growth.
It has been said that Soroptimist is the best kept secret. We have changed the lives of many but few know who we are. Now more than any other time in recent history we have the opportunity to come together, to increase our collective impact, to help women raise their status in Canada, in North America, and beyond.
It gives me great pleasure to invite you to find out more about who we are and what we do.

Rita Mackenzie
Governor, Soroptimist International
Western Canada Region
