The Club represents many countries and many creeds and is open to all women who support the mission of CFUW to strive to promote equality, social justice, fellowship, and life-long learning for women and girls.


  • Established in 1910, CFUW-Ottawa (Canadian Federation of University Women-Ottawa), is an voluntary, self-funded, non-partisan, non-profit organization of almost 500 women. 
  • We are also part of Graduate Women International (GWI), formerly International Federation of University Women (IFUW) - a network of women that is active in more than 60 countries around the world and also celebrated it's centenary in 2019. Canada, along with the United States and Britain, was a founding member of GWI. 
  • Monthly meetings are open to the public and feature speakers on topical issues.
  • We have over 40 Interest Groups focusing on topics from language, music and the arts to gourmet cooking, literature and sports, that are enjoyed by members.
  • Our Scholarship Trust Fund annually disburses over 40 scholarships and awards.
  • We study issues, develop policy resolutions and advocate on social issues particularly those concerning the status of women, human rights, education and legislation relating to peace, justice and the environment.
