CFUW is a non-partisan, voluntary, self-funded organization with over 100 CFUW Clubs, located in every province across Canada. Since 1919, CFUW has been working to improve the status of women and to promote human rights, public education, social justice, and peace. Today, membership is open to all women who support these goals.

Every year, CFUW and its Clubs award close to $1 million to women to pursue post-secondary studies. CFUW Clubs provide leadership and life-long learning opportunities to members. CFUW Clubs are involved in issues locally, provincially and nationally.

CFUW Barrie is part of this great network! 


We offer members the opportunity to meet other women, to support our educational and advocacy initiatives, to enjoy and learn from interesting guest speakers at our monthly meetings.

Best of all, we never forget to have fun! To name just a few of our ‘interest groups’, we have several book clubs, dining events, a walking group, “adventurers” outings, a garden club, and arts & entertainment outings.

We believe there are enough facets to CFUW Barrie and District for women to choose what meets their interests and needs. We invite you to come out to a monthly meeting, see what we’re all about, join us!

Teresa Habs, President 2016-2017
