        This initiative was introduced at the Provincial Convention 2010 and is for the support of the CWL sisters in the Mackenzie-Fort Smith Diocese for the purpose of travel to conventions and workshops. Every council in Alberta Mackenzie is invited to consider working with the provincial council to raise funds to help CWL members in the Northwest Territories travel to CWL events. For more information, see the article in Treasurer Tips and Tools.
        When the collected amount warrants it, forward a cheque with the remittance form above
      • March for Life 
        The National March for Life is organized by Campaign Life Coalition. Pro-lifers rally in front of our Parliament building and march through downtown Ottawa, demanding that our political representatives fight for the right to life of every human being. In addition to the Ottawa event, many provinces also hold regional Marches for Life at their provincial legislatures. Source: https://marchforlife.ca
        The Voluntary fund in support of "March for Life" was instituted at the 2019 Provincial Convention in Grande Prairie.
  • General Liability Insurance:  Liability insurance is a necessity for parish councils to provide protection in the event of an accident. Insurance premiums are collected directly from parish councils. The cost of this insurance has been kept as inexpensive as possible at $0.50 per member. This premium will be in addition to per capita fees. When remitting per capita fees to national office, insurance premiums will also be collected. For parish councils that submit payments electronically, insurance premiums will be automatically withdrawn upon successful completion of an electronic per capita remittance.

    Enrollment in the parish liability insurance program is mandatory and parish councils must remit premiums with the per capita fees. Only by having all parish councils participate in this program will the League be able to keep premiums low. Please contact National Office for the details of what is covered under the policy
