CFUW Saanich Peninsula is a member of the Canadian Federation of University Women, who welcome all women interested in making a difference in their local and international communities.
CFUW Saanich Peninsula is a non-partisan, voluntary, self-funded organization with over 100 CFUW clubs, located in every province across Canada.
Since its founding in 1919, CFUW has been working to improve the status of women, and to promote human rights, public education, social justice, and peace.
CFUW member clubs award close to $1 million in scholarships, bursaries, awards, and fellowships to help women and girls pursue post-secondary education each year.
CFUW holds special status with the United Nations (ECOSOC), Education Committee of the Canadian Commission for UNESCO. CFUW regularly sends a delegation to the United Nations Commission on the Status of Women.

We are women from many fields, in all stages of life, who find fellowship in contributing to their community while being a lifelong learner.
The total disbursements from our Saanich Peninsula CFUW club for the 2016-17 year was $8,500. This amount included $4000 in scholarships to the secondary schools (students completing high school at Parkland, Stellys, Claremont, and the Individual Learning Centre), $1,300 to the Carl and Audrey Mawby University of Victoria scholarship, $1900 to the Camosun College Endowment awards and $1300 to the Camosun College First Nations scholarships.
We are an organization that collaboratively develops policy to speak with a common voice in support of opportunities for women and children.
Below are two resolutions that were presented at the National AGM this year. These Resolutions were overwhelmingly passed by the membership, allowing the CFUW National to continue to advocate to the various levels of government.
Join us, find fellowship, stimulation, monthly events, speaker’s program, and opportunities to develop your passions with others.
