The May Court Club of Oakville inspires volunteerism, develops leaders, and motivates one to positively impact the Oakville and Halton Region!

We’re a group of 240 plus women committed to improving the community through effective programs and activities. Along the way, we enhance skills, develop leaders, and foster life long friendships.  The operation of our club relies completely on the time, talents, and energy shared by volunteer members. Our goal is to direct new members to the right position based on interests, experience and skills.   Along the way, our members develop new skills, make new friends, and have fun!  There are a variety of opportunities to become involved within our organization, such as service placements & committee work. We further strengthen the fostering of friendships with our social groups that can include games, dinner groups, golf, book club, and more.

We are proud to be a member of the Association of The May Court Clubs of Canada, Canada’s First Service Club established in 1898.  Across Ontario, 9 May Court Clubs are consistently improving communities.

Here’s What Our Members Have to Say!

‘I have been a proud member of the May Court Club of Oakville since 1999 and I am passionate about who we are, what we do and what we accomplish together. I have had the great good fortune to work and play with this amazing group of women, making lifelong friends and developing and learning new skills.

Much of my eight years as a May Court member has been spent volunteering at our Nearly New Shop. What a fulfilling experience it is working with fellow members to ensure the heart of our Club continues to be successful. When serving a customer recently, she remarked “I’ve been shopping here for over 35 years and it just gets better every year”. No better validation for time well spent.

The three years that I have been a member have been so fulfilling. Being part of such an amazing group of women is so rewarding. The camaraderie and support given is truly incredible.  It is a club that makes you feel included in all aspects. I have been on the board for two years and because I have found it so interesting, I have chosen to stay on. It’s a great insight into how the club is run. Being part of the committee on our fundraisers is also a great way to be part of the bigger picture, makes you feel as though you have truly contributed to a great cause.
