Congratulations and thanks for keeping us focussed and busy with a great community and provincial program.
CFUW North Vancouver President is honoured for her service in this past year. Keeping an active program that serves our community and at the same time providing us with so many opportunities to pursue our interests in social groups was done with expertise and grace.
This CFUW local club provides opportunities for members to put their education at the service of the community, advocate for women, children and families, complete worthwhile projects, and gather to pursue common interest.
Our members are active in the community with projects involve local, provincial, national and global issues. We participate in community outreach initiatives and many of our interest groups consider community issues. Each year we suggest and/or review resolutions which will be put forward to appropriate provincial and national governments.
Our club also provides opportunities to form contact and friendships around our smaller interest groups. These groups along with the Program Committee’s work to engage speakers on a monthly basis allow for continuing intellectual growth and stimulation through conversation and dialogue among members.
CFUW North Vancouver, collecting good used household goods and furniture, is a community outreach participant in the Highlands United Church Shelter to Home Outreach rehousing the homeless program which always needs more help from the community. Other initiatives and community projects include work over the year with local programs that include North Shore Community Resources and Hollyburn Family Services. In addition members of the NV CFUW Advocacy Committee will focus on the following social and education issues provincially and how these issues affect our local community. This list for 2021-2022 includes:
- Early Learning and Childcare
- Long Term Care and Elder Rights
- Indigenous People’s Rights
- Current Issues in Public Education
- Climate Change
- Gender Based Violence
- Pay Equity

SUPPORTING WOMEN IN POST-SECONDARY EDUCATION
Through our Educational Trust Fund we fund bursaries to women graduates of the seven North Vancouver School District 44 secondary schools, as well as to undergraduate women students at the University of British Columbia, Simon Fraser University, Capilano University and the British Columbia Institute of Technology, having established permanent foundations in the name of CFUW North Vancouver at the latter three. A student should apply for an award through her academic institution’s Student Services Offices or School Offices.
BC Gaming Commission provides funds for Secondary Scholarships.a meeting. All the grant money will be used to fund post-secondary scholarships for a female graduate at each of the North Vancouver secondary schools this year, chosen by the school counselors based on club-specific criteria. Since 2003 when the current BC Gaming rules were enacted, CFUW North Vancouver has received a grant almost annually. The grants have enabled the club to increase dramatically the size of its scholarships to between totals of $7,000 in the early years to $15,000 most recently. The club’s cumulative awards to North Vancouver secondary schools since the club’s inception in 1980 exceed $130,000. The gaming grants are based partly on the annual amounts raised by the club independently which fund additional annual scholarships of about $1,000 each at BCIT, CAP U, SFU and UBC.
