Parksville Qualicum

CFUW (Canadian Federation of University Women) Parksville Qualicum is an inclusive group of women residing in the Oceanside area who are committed to and actively promote equality, education and opportunities for women and girls, locally, nationally, and internationally.

Parksville Qualicum

CFUW (formerly known as Canadian Federation of University Women) Parksville Qualicum is a voluntary, non-profit, non-partisan group open to all persons identifying as a woman who are committed to and actively promote equality, education,  and opportunities for children, girls, and women – locally, nationally, and internationally.

Founding CFUW members were trailblazing university graduates at a time when universities in Canada were not yet generally open to women. We want to retain the historical roots of the organization and still open up membership to be more inclusive to women from all walks of life who support the goals and mission of CFUW.  Read more about our journey to greater inclusivity here.

We encourage you to explore our site, and we welcome you if you’d like to join us.
