About Us

The May Court Club of Ottawa is Canada’s oldest women’s service club. Founded in 1898 to provide “young women of leisure” a vehicle to serve the wider community, it has evolved into a dynamic group of women from many walks of life who are dedicated to community service.

Providing thousands of volunteer hours and monetary grants to our community, the Club is recognized by Revenue Canada as a charitable organization and operates under the direction of a Board of Directors elected by the membership at the Annual General Meeting.

While the primary activity is to serve the community we also encourage social interaction among our members through various social activities.

Our Annual Report provides details of our activities as well. Click Annual Report 2018-2019 to see the latest issue.
