Hello and welcome to the Web site of the Canadian Women’s Association (CWA) in Jakarta. For first time visitors, we’re glad you found us. For returning visitors, check out our updates!
Our purpose is to encourage a sense of community as Canadian citizens in Jakarta, to offer social activities for the Canadian community, to provide support for newcomers and to contribute to social development needs in Indonesia. It is intended that the Web site provides quick access to information which may be of interest to our membership. We also wanted to provide a link through which members (including those who do not generally have the opportunity to attend our monthly coffee mornings) would feel more connected to the Canadian Women’s Association and to a greater part of the Canadian community in Indonesia.
Membership is open to all nationalities. At present, we have approximately 75 members who are mainly Canadian, although everyone who has an interest in Canada and/or Canadian affairs is welcome to join. Membership entitles a person to receive a newsletter and exclusive attendance or a discount at some activities. Most activities are conducted in English. At present, membership fees are 300,000 rupiah per year and the year runs from September 1 to August 31. You can register online. Click on the Sign Up button. Download or fill in the on-line form.
Coffee morning meetings are typically held on the first Thursday of each month. Both members and non-members are welcome. A small fee is charged to non-members. Occasionally, vendors’ goods are available plus guest speakers and raffle prizes are arranged. Check out the Event section for more information.
