History of the Association of May Court Clubs of Canada

In 1898, Lady Aberdeen, wife of the Governor-General of Canada,

held a May Day Party on the grounds of Rideau Hall in Ottawa. She spoke to over 100 privileged young women, urging them to use their resources to help those less fortunate than themselves. From that beginning, the May Court Club was established.

From that beginning, the May Court Club was established. At present, there are member clubs now working in the following nine cities across Ontario:
