Beginning our 61st Year. Our 2016 – 2017 Program is now posted.


CFUW Leaside – East York brings women together from across East York, and beyond to connect, learn and advocate.

We are one of several Toronto area clubs of the Canadian Federation of University Women, CFUW, a national women’s organization committed to:

  • Improving the status of women & girls
  • Promoting quality public education
  • Advancing the status of women, human rights, justice, & peace.

We welcome all women who share our purpose.

CFUW is affiliated with Graduate Women International, GWI.
Our Club is also a member of CFUW Ontario Council.

Our Program and Activities run from September to May. Explore our website to learn more about our activities and how to become a member.

Current Activities to Highlight!
Advocating for Proportional Representation
Members of our Issues and Actions Interest Group are currently involved in many activities advocating for Proportional Representation as the Special Parliamentary Committee on Electoral Reform seeks input and makes recommendations.

Learning more about Indigenous Peoples
As a result of the Truth and Reconciliation Commission, our club members decided to make a commitment to expanding our knowledge and understanding of indigenous cultures and peoples through our many activities.
Coming up: A visit to Dodem Kanonhsa’ in central Toronto.
