Catholic Women’s Leadership Program 

After careful consideration, the 2023-24 Catholic Women’s Leadership Program has been postponed and we will be relaunching the program in 2024-25.


This one-year time frame would allow the foundation as well as the University to review and continue planning for all aspects of the program. It will also provide time to reach out to women across Canada who may be unaware of this opportunity.

Our History

Over the past few decades, we have seen a growing need for Catholic women to fill leadership positions – roles where they are able to share their values, gifts and talents in powerful and meaningful ways.

Our Program

The Catholic Women’s Leadership Foundation, in partnership with the Providence School of Transformative Leadership and Spirituality at Saint Paul University in Ottawa, has developed a yearlong leadership certificate program to help Catholic women strengthen their leadership skills in an environment which integrates faith and spirituality.

Our Way Forward

With a new strategic plan under development, the Foundation is looking forward through collaboration, education, and supportive networks enabling an influential voice for Catholic women in Canada.

Program Reviews

The Catholic Women's Leadership Foundation Program affirmed and encouraged me as a woman of faith in the church today.  The diversity of ages, careers, orientation in our church commitments, and physical location in Canada, provided a rich opportunity for growth together.  At the end of the year, I feel deeply grateful, somewhat wiser, and more excited for and aware of emerging possibilities.  Thank you to the fantastic lead facilitators and the support of the CWL Foundation for this deeply enriching opportunity that indeed offers a transformative way of being in the world.
