Administrative History
In 1967, the Zionist Organization of Canada became a constituent member of the new Federated Zionist Organization of Canada (FZOC), along with Canadian Hadassah-Wizo, the Labour Zionist Movement of Canada, Mizrachi Hapoel Hamizrachi Organization of Canada, Zionist Revisionist Organization of Canada, Achdut Avoda, and Friends of Pioneering Israel (Mapam). In 1972, FZOC became the Canadian Zionist Federation (CZF). Established as a national federation for Zionist organizations across Canada, it is the official representative and voice of Canadian Zionists to the World Zionist Organization and remains committed to Jewish education, Jewish culture and the centrality of Israel in Jewish life. During the 1970s, the ZOC's functions were gradually absorbed by the Canadian Zionist Federation and by 1978, the Zionist Organization of Canada had ceased to function as an organization.

Admin History/Bio
The Federated Zionist Organization of Canada (FZOC) was established at a founding convention held March 31 to April 4, 1967. The constituent members of FZOC were the Zionist Organization of Canada, Canadian Hadassah-Wizo, the Labour Zionist Movement of Canada, the Mizrachi Hapoel-Hamizrachi Organization of Canada, the Zionist Revisionist Organization of Canada, Achdut Ha'avoda - Poale Zion, and the Friends of Pioneering Israel. The purpose of this new organization was to unify the voice of Jewish Canada at home and abroad.
FZOC committees were now responsible for the bulk of the administrative affairs for all of the Zionist activities undertaken by the above mentioned groups. These included activities in the areas of public relations, education and culture, youth, camping, aliyah, publications, United Israel Appeal and financial budgets. All activities undertaken by each constituent group that was not of mutual concern would continue to be financed and administered independently.
Although ZOC remained an independent non-political organization with its own agenda and mandate, FZOC assumed the staffing structure and personnel of ZOC, and thus a large amount of administrative overlapping occured. The headquarters of ZOC and FZOC were combined in ZOC's Montreal offices until April 1970. In June 1970, ZOC moved its headquarters to Toronto while FZOC's offices remained in Montreal. ZOC initially had the loudest voice in the new organization with an allotted 50% representation on the National Executive, the Inner Executive, on all committees, and as delegates to all future conventions.
By 1972, FZOC had changed its name to the Canadian Zionist Federation (CZF).

Admin History/Bio
The Zionist Organization of Canada (ZOC) (1921-1978) acted as the official voice of Zionism in Canada, promoting the aims of Zionism in communities across the country. The ZOC mandate was: 1) the promotion of immigration to Israel; 2) raising funds to carry out the aims of Zionism; 3) encouraging investment in Israel; 4) fostering Jewish consciousness; and 5) mobilizing public opinion about Israel and the Jewish communities of the Diaspora.
The Federation of Zionist Societies of Canada (FZSOC) was founded in 1898 as the national collective of groups representing Zionist interests in Canada. In 1921 the organization changed its name and was incorporated as the Zionist Organization of Canada, becoming the primary umbrella organization for Zionist groups in Canada.
The ZOC was a broad-based organization that embraced an ideology of nationhood which attracted influential national leaders within the Jewish community as well as thousands of members across the country. ZOC's main office was located in Montreal until 1970, when it moved to the Toronto Zionist Centre on Marlee Ave, Toronto. ZOC provided smaller communities, which had few institutional supports, with vital linkages to the metropolitan centres through their programs that were run out of the regional offices and local Zionist councils. The Zionist Organization of Canada administered the budgets of such organizations as Canadian Hadassah-Wizo, the Men's Zionist Organization of Canada and Young Judaea. ZOC programs promoted a stronger Jewish identity amongst Canadian Jews and familiarity with Hebrew through the periodical, Canadian Zionist. These programs included book clubs, lunch clubs, film exhibits, youth camps, travel offices, and two television programs during the 1970s on cable television in Montreal and Toronto.
In 1967, ZOC became a constituent member of the new Federated Zionist Organization of Canada (FZOC), along with Canadian Hadassah-Wizo, the Labour Zionist Movement of Canada, Mizrachi Hapoel Hamizrachi Organization of Canada, Zionist Revisionist Organization of Canada, Achdut Avoda, and Friends of Pioneering Israel (Mapam). In 1972, FZOC became the Canadian Zionist Federation (CZF). During the 1970s, ZOC's functions were gradually absorbed by the Canadian Zionist Federation, the CZF Central Region based in Toronto, and by the Toronto Zionist Council. By 1978, the Zionist Organization of Canada had ceased to function as an organization.
