The Catherine McVean Chapter was formally known as the Sydenham Chapter and was granted it’s charter October 10, 1914. Our motto is “We live in deeds!”
We currently have 39 members and by pooling our energies and talents, we are able to support programs for education, health care, social needs, and for seniors, monthly birthday parties.
We meet ten times a year at the St. Andrew’s Presbyterian Church on the first Tuesday of each month from September to June. The meeting start at 7:30pm.
We need more willing hands and new ideas from all age groups to help work; if YOU are interested in helping IODE as a voluteer, please contact:

Our Mission . . . .
The mission of IODE, a Canadian women’s charitable organization, is to improve the quality of life for children, youth, and those in need through educational, social service and citizenship programs.
What do the letters IODE stand for?
IODE was founded in 1900 by Margaret Polson Murray as Imperial Order Daughters of the Empire. IODE, as the organization is now known, is a Canadian woman’s volunteer organization. It is an organization, that over the years, has changed to meet the changing needs of all Canadians from coast to coast, with a particular focus on children and their needs.
