Community Engagement

CFUW demonstrates that women working together can be a powerful source of change. Our network of clubs across Canada are working within their local communities to help build a more equitable world for women and girls. Ultimately, we envision a world where poverty is reduced, discrimination and violence eliminated, where women and girls are fully able to realize their potential through equal opportunities for education, leadership and employment.

Our initiatives are wide-ranging from our vibrant network of creative, dynamic and committed women. We offer lifelong learning opportunities for our own members. We engage governments at the municipal, provincial and federal levels in Canada. Our advocacy campaigns focus on social and economic issues affecting women’s quality of life and career prospects. 

CFUW Clubs work with local educational institutions, women’s shelters, harm and risk reduction organizations and other community groups on specific projects and fund-raising initiatives. Our clubs administer local scholarship and bursary programs to advance women and girls access to education. CFUW is committed to connecting women in their communities to advance gender equality.
