On February 26th, 2009, PAZ Arias, Lauren Crosby, Jessica Doyle, Heather McBride, Lesley Walker, and Laura Kell set out to establish Alpha Pi Phi in Ottawa. This group of bright, determined and like-minded individuals courageously started a new Sorority and we are honoured to follow in their footsteps.


The Kappa Chapter was founded on August 27th, 2017 at Lakehead Univerity in Thunder Bay, ON. Our founding sisters, Zaira Gocatek, Siobhan Stewart, Josie Ngo, Brianna Beale, Abby Viers, and Cameron Charlton excitingly brought the very first sorority so Thunder Bay, ON. 


The purpose of Alpha Pi Phi is to promote a sisterhood united through love, loyalty, and friendship. We strive to foster confidence in young women and to aid in the development of their leadership skills. We encourage members to conduct themselves with grace, dignity, and moral integrity. Alpha Pi Phi Kappa also cultivates academic excellence and nurture generosity through active philanthropy for the betterment of the community.


  • Please visit our international website for a more detailed version of Alpha Pi Phi’s history and about our other chapters at various locations.


  • Sisterhood

    Join our ever-growing sisterhood; Alpha Pi Phi. Every sister in Alpha Pi Phi is unique. Our sorority provides its members with an incredible support system in and out of the school setting. 

    We strive to make our organization open to all and most importantly welcoming in order to create lasting relationships with all of our sisters through philanthropic and sisterhood events.

  • Academics

    Within our organization, we realize the importance of academics while being associated with the school community. We believe academic excellence is vital, therefore we have established a weekly study period for our active sisters that takes place in the Chancellor Paterson Library on campus. 

    Visit Lakehead's Student Success Centre either online or on campus for additional scholastic support.

  • Leadership

    Being a leader is not about position, but rather positively impacting, influencing, and inspiring others. Here at Alpha Pi Phi, we continuously empower one another to foster and develop strong leadership skills through active roles within the organization.

  • Philanthropy

    We in Alpha Pi Phi believe giving back to the community is priceless. You will see our sisters constantly around campus or out in the community volunteering. Our official philanthropy is the Alzheimer’s Society of Canada.

    Each year each one of our chapters participates in the Walk for Alzheimer’s event to bring awareness and funding to this cause.
