The organization is a voluntary, non-profit, self-funded non-governmental organization of close to 10,000 women graduates and students in 118 clubs (branches)in every province of Canada as of 2009. The Halifax Club traces its history back to 5 May 1936, when the first organizational meeting was held. The first general meeting took place on 23 October 1936 and affiliation with the national body was completed in 1937. Members are active in public affairs, work together for equality for women and girls, to raise the social, economic, political and legal status of women, as well as to improve education, the environment, peace, justice and human rights.
