Biographical history

The Vancouver Business and Professional Women's Club was founded in 1922 to promote the interests of self-supporting Vancouver women. One of the club's early projects was the formation of a revolving Loan Fund to help young women financially unable to complete their education and to help finance courses for mature women wishing to re-enter business or professional life. The club also carried out various educational, social and charitable activities. It was affiliated with regional and national organizations.
