CFUW seeks to engage and educate members regarding topical social issues and to influence policy makers. We work to ensure that all women and girls have equal opportunities and equal access to quality education within a peaceful and secure environment where their human rights are respected.

For Education, we focus our actions in relation to the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals, particularly the following goal:


Ensure inclusive and equitable quality education and promote lifelong learning opportunities for all

CFUW is involved in many different initiatives in support of education. While each of our clubs is different, they all provide support for education through student scholarships and awards for post-secondary education, funding reading programs, featuring speakers that facilitate lifelong learning, and providing bursaries for women preparing for non-traditional careers.

CFUW Vision

Women and girls are educated and empowered to make transformative change in the world.

CFUW Mission

Achieve educational and economic equality and social justice through continuous learning and empowerment.
