Home  ::  About OWLE  ::  Our History
Ontario Women in Law Enforcement (OWLE) is an organization that grew from an idea to bring together the female members of the law enforcement field from across the province.

It was recognized that many police services within Ontario are either too small or simply do not employ significant numbers of females to form individual organizations. This forum provides an opportunity for members to network and access professional development opportunities. Recognizing that there exists strength in unity and numbers, Ontario Women in Law Enforcement encourages women from each and every police service, and other affiliated law enforcement agencies within the province of Ontario, to collectively address their common interests and concerns.

Ontario Women in Law Enforcement was granted official affiliate status with the International Association of Women Police (IAWP) in 1997. The IAWP is a world-wide organization of women police and law enforcement professionals who operate on the same principles as Ontario Women in Law Enforcement, but on a global scale with an annual training conference. The Toronto Police Service and Ontario Provincial Police in conjunction with OWLE were proud to host the 38th annual conference of the IAWP in Toronto in September 2000. This event attracted over 700 delegates world-wide and was an overwhelming success.
