Administrative history

The Women’s Division of the Moose Jaw Safety Council was formed in 1960, comprised of the safety members from the Council of Women. The first president was Mrs. Ruby Ward. There were ten members, later fourteen. In 1963, upon forwarding their constitution to the Saskatchewan Safety Council, the former Women’s Division of the Moose Jaw Safety Council was granted a charter (Charter No. 15), making them a full fledged member in the Saskatchewan Safety Council, and the first Women’s Safety Council in Canada. They were an independent group interested in the furtherance of special safety projects. An annual project was the “No thanks, I’m driving” campaign, where they sponsored radio advertisements and held a tag day, enlisting the aid of the local cadets to help collect funds. They sponsored safety poster contests in the Moose Jaw schools, and entered floats promoting safety awareness in local parades. The Women’s Safety Council also made monetary donations to service organizations for the purchase of items such as oxygen tanks, walkers and wheel chairs enabling former hospital patients to live at home.
