The Western Women's Canadian Football League (WWCFL) is a full-contact women's Canadian football league which began play in the spring of 2011. The league plays an annual season in the spring or summer, and with 8 teams it is the largest women's football league in Canada. The teams play 12-women tackle football games using the Football Canada rules, somewhat similar to those of the CFL. The league has teams in Manitoba, Saskatchewan and Alberta (the prairie provinces of Canada).
The first season of play ended with a championship game which was played in the city of Lethbridge, Alberta. The game was played between the Edmonton Storm and the Saskatoon Valkyries. The Valkyries became the first WWCFL Champions, with a final score of 35-7.
In the fall of 2012 it was announced that two new teams would be joining the league in 2013. The Northern Anarchy will be based in Grande Prairie, Alberta. and the Okotoks Lady Outlawz in Okotoks, Alberta. Talks involved the league going as high as 11 teams for 2013, including expansion into British Columbia but it never occurred. In 2014, the Okotoks Lady Outlawz did not field a team for WWCFL play, with a plan to rebuild in future. The Northern Anarchy took a break in 2015, although practice sessions continued, and the Anarchy returned to the field in the 2016 season.
