  • Established in 1910, CFUW-Ottawa, is an voluntary, self-funded, non-partisan, non-profit organization of over 500 graduate women, students and associates.  It is one of 112 clubs across the country that make up the Canadian Federation of University Women (CFUW) . We are also part of Graduate Women International (GWI), formerly International Federation of University Women (IFUW)  - a network of women present in more than 120 countries around the world.   Provincially, we are members of CFUW Ontario Council.

  • We study, 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.
