Members of Zonta are executives or professionals in a recognized business, institution, or profession who are willing to support the objectives of Zonta by advancing the status of women. We believe in gender equality and we have female and male members in our eClub.
Founded in 1919, Zonta International is a global organization of 30,000 members in 66 countries working together to advance the status of women worldwide through service and advocacy.
Our eClub was created when the Zonta Club of Mississauga joined with some members of the Zonta Club of Ottawa and some members of the Zonta Club of Toronto (note - the traditional clubs in Ottawa and Toronto still exist). The online meetings are extremely convenient for our busy members who find it difficult to attend meetings in person due to longer commutes, parenting responsibilities, and full personal and professional lives. Zonta has a long tradition in Canada. The Zonta Club of Toronto was chartered in 1927, the Ottawa Club in 1929, and the Zonta Club of Mississauga was chartered in 1967.
Our eClub meets online once a month on the third Wednesday of the month. All members are expected to join committees and participate in meetings, activities, and events.
