Who are we....
Founded in 1900, IODE Canada is a national women's charitable organization dedicated to enhancing the quality of life for individuals through education support, community service, and citizenship programs.
The Sarnia-Lambton Municipal Chapter began on April 8th, 1938. The founders chose the motto, "Laborare Fideliter" which means "to labour faithfully."
