Administrative history

The predecessor of the Anglican Church Women (ACW) organization was the Women's Auxiliary(WA) established in 1887. The ACW was officially incorporated by the province of Manitoba on 21 March, 1967. Its purpose was to "unite women in a fellowship of worship, study and offering, which will deepen and strengthen their own spiritual lives and will lead them into Christian service in parish, community, diocese, nation and world". The organizational structure consisted of General Meeting, Diocesan Board, Deaneries as constituted in the Diocese of Rupert's Land, and Parish Groups. The first Board meeting under the new name was held on April 11, 1967, with Mrs. B.F. Larsen as President. The ACW existed at the Diocesan level until 31 December 1973, but it was never entirely dissolved at the Parish level.

Custodial history

The records of the ACW came to the Diocesan archives as a transfer of records accessioned in 1984.
