The Power of Women Working Together

The Canadian Federation of University Women-Northumberland (CFUW-N) was founded in 1991. CFUW-N promotes education and advocacy for women and girls. Membership is open to all women who value lifelong learning.  CFUW-N works with the six Northumberland County high schools, The Children’s Foundation, The First People’s House of Learning, Fleming College and Trent University, to identify women who will benefit from financial support as they pursue their education. Over $9,000 in scholarships and bursaries were awarded in 2021.

At our monthly meetings, speakers present interesting and challenging talks on a wide range of topics. These meetings are a prime opportunity for members to promote fellowship, stay informed, and learn about opportunities for advocacy in our community, provincially and nationally.  During the COVID-19 pandemic, our meetings have been held virtually.  We look forward to being able to get together in person when conditions permit.

Through our many and varied interest groups, CFUW-N members have the opportunity to make lasting friendships and enjoy the benefits of learning, socializing and supporting one another.
