CFUW North Vancouver and CFUW West Vancouver are clubs whose members are women who support the mission and ideals of the Canadian Federation of University Women (CFUW) in Canada – to “work and advocate for women’s equality, social justice, human rights, quality education, peace and the environment.” Our two clubs are independent of each other but we work together on outreach initiatives and in shared interest groups.
CFUW North Vancouver funds educational foundations at B.C.I.T, Capilano University and Simon Fraser University, as well as UBC and others, through fundraising events and donations from both members and the public. Our North Vancouver Secondary School graduate awards are funded through the BC Gaming Policy and Enforcement Branch via application request by us.
Our clubs, two of the 23 clubs in the province, are members of the CFUW BC Council, the Canadian Federation of University Women (CFUW National) with 107 clubs across Canada, and are affiliated with the Graduate Women International (GWI) (formerly IFUW).
