CFUW 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 is the largest affiliate of Graduate Women International (formerly the International Federation of University Women), the leading girls’ and women’s global organization run by and for women, advocating for women’s rights, equality and empowerment through access to quality education and training up to the highest levels.


CFUW in Alberta began in Edmonton in 1909 and expanded to Calgary in 1923. There are five clubs in Alberta; Edmonton, Strathcona, Calgary, Calgary North and Lethbridge.


Our clubs welcome all women who support the purposes, mission and values of CFUW. Find a club near you
