Ontario Council Standing Committees in Legislation, Education, and Status of Women and Human Rights were developed to keep members aware of current issues in Ontario. The Committees meet three times a year – in September, November, and March in downtown Toronto – for a day of speakers, workshops, discussion, and networking with other CFUW members and guests. All Club members are invited and are encouraged to bring friends, whether or not they are members, to enjoy these days of discussion and learning.
