Members of Zonta are executives or professionals in a recognized business, institution, or profession who are willing to support the objectives of Zonta.

The Zonta Club of Ottawa, Ontario, is a member of Zonta International, a leading global service and advocacy organization with more than 30,000 members worldwide. Founded in 1919 and named for a Native American Sioux word that means “honest and trustworthy,” Zonta is made up of executives and professionals who work together to empower and assist women locally and internationally. The Zonta Club of Ottawa was chartered in 1929.

While Zonta is active in 66 countries, our clubs are not divided by country. Rather, our members work in geographic regions that transcend national and provincial borders. For example, Zonta Ottawa ON is part of a District that includes clubs in Montreal and many parts of New York State. This global structure enhances the truly international nature and scope of our mission and mandate.

(Note:  There are two Zonta Clubs of Ottawa – ours in Ontario, Canada, and the Zonta Club of Ottawa, Illinois is in the United States)

Zonta International
