    1:00 pm  - January 6th -  Speakers’ Series

    Almost two years ago, Toronto Star columnist Vicky Mochama called the treatment of women – and especially Indigenous women – in Canadian prisons “a human rights travesty.” She noted that women prisoners are routinely denied the basic human dignity, medical treatment, training opportunities and culturally appropriate spiritual support necessary to equip them for life beyond incarceration.

    Our January guest speaker, Senator Kim Pate, has worked tirelessly throughout her career to bring the plight of such women to the attention of Canadian policy makers and the general public. In her talk, “Decolonizing Canada’s Prisons for Women,” Senator Pate will argue for a prison system rooted in humanity and empathy.

    Kim Pate was appointed as an Independent member of the Senate of Canada in 2016. For over 20 years, she was the Executive Director of the Canadian Association of Elizabeth Fry Societies (CAEFS), a federation of local societies working with and on behalf of some of the most marginalized, victimized, criminalized and institutionalized women in Canada.

    Senator Pate is a member of the Order of Canada, a recipient of the Governor General’s Award in Commemoration of the Persons Case, the Canadian Bar Association’s Bertha Wilson Touchstone Award, and five honorary doctorates from the Law Society of Upper Canada, University of Ottawa, Carleton University, St. Thomas University and Wilfred Laurier University.

    Topic is “Decolonizing Canada’s Prisons for Women.”

    CFUW  2020 Annual General Meeting in Ottawa 

    Mark your calendars!  The Canadian Federal of University Women’s 2020 Annual General Meeting will be held in Ottawa from June 18 to 20, 2020.

    What is the theme?

    New Century – New Challenges

    Where is the AGM being held?

    The venue is the Delta Hotel Ottawa City Centre (101 Lyon Street North), a modern hotel located within walking distance of many Ottawa attractions. We have negotiated a special price for CFUW AGM attendees and will be sharing this information as soon as possible.

    When and how can I register?

    Your Local Arrangements Committee (LAC) is hard at work organizing the event and there are some details that need to be worked out before registration can begin.  Watch for a delegate advisory email from the National Office once registration is open. 

    We will also update this website and post the information on social media.  You can follow us on Facebook (CFUW – Ottawa) or on Twitter (@cfuwottawaclub).

    What is on the Agenda?

    The Agenda is being finalized and it is shaping up to be an exciting event.  Details will be shared as soon as possible. 

    The meeting will follow the general format of past AGMs, including:

    • ·       An Opening Reception;
    • ·       A Banquet with a stimulating guest Speaker;
    • ·       Workshops;
    • ·       Tours of Ottawa points of interest; and
    • ·       Many occasions to network and meet CFUW members from across Canada.

    Sounds exciting!  Can I contribute? I have a question.

    Absolutely!  An event of this magnitude requires the support of many volunteers.  If you would like to help or have questions, contact:

    Registration is open to CFUW members only.

    CFUW-Ottawa members watch for updates on the member-only CFUW 2020 AGM page (you have to be signed in to access the page).
