  • CFUW advocates for women’s equality in Canada and abroad, and is concerned with a wide range of other public policy issues important to women, including: aboriginal affairs, education, the environment, peace, justice and human rights, among others.
  • CFUW advocacy is guided by the policies voted on by CFUW members every year at our Annual General Meeting.
  • These policies come from the grassroots of our organization and are the result of extensive research, debate, and consultation.
  • At the national level, we monitor federal legislation and policies and stay in contact with the Government of Canada and other government officials to communicate our members’ views.
