You may also view the PowerPoint presentations and CFUW Stratford’s list of resources and other materials to help you and your club take the next step toward implementing the TRC’s Calls to Action.

The CFUW Barrie and District Advocacy Committee has compiled a list of activities for members during the month of June which is Indigenous Peoples Month, and for June 21st, which is National Indigenous Peoples Day.

As CFUW members we know that education is a great first step in awareness and a guidepost towards achieving meaningful solutions to an issue or a situation. We encourage everyone to use the resources listed here to better familiarize ourselves with Canada’s Indigenous history.

Some of the suggestions are educational, some are entertaining, and for many, a step towards understanding the past. Whatever you choose to do, we are confident that CFUW members will enjoy the experience!

CFUW Orillia’s virtual homes tour was a great success! Switching from their usual in-person Homes Tour to a Virtual Tour this year was a leap of faith for the members of the Canadian Federation of University Women (CFUW) Orillia. The Homes for Scholarships tour is a major fundraiser for the organization which awards scholarships to Orillia and area young women who are pursuing post-secondary education. 

That leap of faith turned out to exceed all expectations set out by the organizing committee. 543 people from across Canada, the US, Europe, and Asia registered to attend the virtual tour that was held on June 6th! $25,600 was raised during this year’s event. Congratulations CFUW Orillia! 

CFUW Oshawa & District have created a video to celebrate their Club’s 75th anniversary. It’s a wonderful testimony to the Club’s history and highlights how world and country events have shaped the Club’s activities and events.
