The origins of the Association of French-Canadian Women date back to the summer of 1914. The group was founded in Ottawa by Madame Paul-Eugène Marchand and her colleagues in Ottawa and Hull. The initial goal of this volunteer women's organization was to help French-Canadian soldiers and their families. Over time, the organization’s scope widened to include the defense of French culture and the Catholic religion, charities, social welfare and the advancement of women in all spheres of society. In 1985, the group took the name of the National Federation of French-Canadian Women. In 1988, a provincial charter was granted to the Federation of French-Canadian Women in Ontario.
