The Women's Canadian Club of the Eastern Townships was formed in 1949, its mandate like other Canadian clubs was "having for its objects the encouragement of the study of the history, literature, and resources of Canada" and engaged in joint activities occasionally. The Women's Canadian Club of Eastern Townships was governed by a board of executive directors. In 2014, the Club members voted to dissolve because of a decreasing membership.
