CFUW NORTHUMBERLAND. Canadian Federation of University Women

About CFUW Northumberland

CFUW Northumberland was founded in 1991 and is one of the 60 Clubs existing across the province of Ontario. We have over 100 members drawn from Cobourg, Port Hope and the surrounding townships. We invite all women to support young women’s education in Northumberland County, and learn more about the issues which confront us every day in the media and our own lives by joining CFUW-Northumberland.

If you are a graduate of a university or college in Canada or abroad, are enrolled in university or college, or just support the objectives and purposes of post-secondary education, you will find a warm welcome here.

Our primary fund raising event is the annual Scholarship Luncheon, which allows us to offer funding to young women graduating from Northumberland high schools and an endowment fund with Trent University which assists a returning undergraduate or graduate female student. Recent speakers include: CBC producer and rights advocate Karin Wells; Canada's former Auditor-General Sheila Fraser; and Alia Hogben C.M., LL.D., Executive Director, Canadian Council of Muslim Women.

Our monthly meetings are held on the first Monday of the month at 6:45 p.m. at Port Hope High School and HTM Insurance at 1185 Elgin Street W.  in Cobourg.  We present challenging speakers on a wide range of subjects.

Our membership enjoys participating in one or more of the 17 interest groups that have been formed over the years and are such a wonderful source of information, support and friendship. An informative newsletter is published several times a year.
