Join the WIIS-Canada Network

WIIS-Canada aims to create a comprehensive national network to bring together all Canadian practitioners, researchers and supporters of the advancement of women in the local and international peace and security sector. If you are currently working in this field as a researcher, practitioner, advocate and/or are interested in building your capacity and career on this front, we welcome you as a member. We welcome members of all genders.

  • Unlimited access to a network of nationally and internationally renowned professionals in the field of peace and security;
  • Participation in the Annual Workshop;
  • Exclusive invites and discounts to WIIS-Canada networking events and opportunities around the country;
  • The opportunity to be part of the WIIS-Canada Mentorship Program;
  • Regular email updates, including job opportunities;
  • Membership of the WIIS-Global network, including access to the member’s only portal on the WIIS-Global website, and a monthly bulletin with international job opportunities;
  • Formal support to run your own WIIS-Canada events and projects including starting your own WIIS-Canada regional chapter;
  • Promotion of your own initiatives through the WIIS-Canada social media platforms, and our mailing list.
  • Members can register at any time by following the steps below
  • There are two dates for renewal of all memberships: either at the time of our Annual General Meeting, to be held in November each year OR at the Annual Workshop, which is held in the spring each year.
  • If you register within one month prior the Annual Workshop or the Annual General Meeting, your renewal membership fee for the following year will be waived, and we will automatically renew your membership for the following year. Registrations at any other time of the year will be valid up until the following Annual Workshop, or the Annual General Meeting, whichever comes first.

 

Membership registration requires two steps:

  1. Complete the registration form below
  2. Submit your $25.00 annual membership payment by clicking the paypal button
    Please note: if you are registering through your local Chapter, please do not use the PayPal button. You must pay your $25 membership fee directly to your Chapter. They will transfer a part of this fee to us, and keep a portion for Chapter purposes.

Your membership is complete only when both steps have been verified. Once your membership is approved, you will receive a Welcome Message from WIIS-Canada. Since your membership of WIIS-Canada grants you automatic membership of WIIS-Global, you will also receive an email from WIIS-Global with an invitation to sign up for the member’s portal on the WIIS-Global website.
