CWL History in Edmonton Archdiocese 1912-1962
"In 1912, Hughes founded the Catholic Women's League of Edmonton, which nationalized into the Catholic Women's League of Canada in 1920. It was modelled after the Catholic Women's League of England, which Hughes had inquired about while travelling in England. The organization welcomed new immigrants, ran an affordable hostel named Rosary Hall, offered a free job placement service, and acted as one of the first social services in Alberta." excerpt from https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Katherine_Hughes_(activist)
