CFUW Ontario Council 2019 AGM & Conference

Plans are well underway for the 2019 CFUW Ontario Council AGM and Conference, thanks to the host clubs: CFUW Etobicoke and UWC Toronto.

Our venue is the University of Toronto Faculty Club, 41 Willcocks Street, just three stops South of Bloor on the Spadina street-car line.  The Spadina car also runs north from Union Station.

Accommodations

There is no hotel associated with the conference, however, we are able to offer some billeting courtesy of Toronto Club members. We encourage delegates to make their own arrangements, keeping in mind that parking in the area of the site is limited and expensive.

  • Some nearby condos offer suites for rent.

    • New College: 21 Classic Ave. 416-946-5317 (washroom not in unit).
