The Delta Kappa Gamma Society is an honorary, professional society for outstanding women educators, with chapters in the United States, Canada and twelve other countries. It was founded in Austin, Texas, on May 11, 1929, by Dr. Annie Webb Blanton and eleven other Founders who firmly believed that women educators could better the working conditions of women teachers and improve education.

The history of Delta Kappa Gamma in Canada began on June 7, 1952, with the founding of Alpha Province, British Columbia, a move which made the Society international. The Society is now organized in each of the ten provinces, with a total Canadian membership in 1997 of 1041 members.
Alberta was the sixth Canadian province to join the Society. One May 3, 1960, Zeta Province, Alberta was installed as a member of The Delta Kappa Gamma Society International. Since that time, Alberta has grown to encompass five local chapters with over 150 members.
