Membership is open to all women who support the purposes of CFUW. It is not limited to university graduates. Our dynamic group consists of women from various backgrounds, education, and interests.

Your membership strengthens our voice when we advocate for change.  You may participate in the group as much or as little as you want, knowing that your support is helping to foster social justice.

Our membership year runs from July 1 – June 30. Dues support the operation of the CFUW PQ club as well as the CFUW National organization.

Our meetings are held monthly, the second Monday of the month unless otherwise noted, at 7 pm at the Qualicum Beach Civic Centre (QCC) or the MacMillan Arts Centre (MAC) in Parksville. Please check the Calendar for dates and locations, and for our list of upcoming speakers. 


The purpose of CFUW, and CFUW PQ is as follows:

  • To promote understanding, friendship and cooperation among members and with like-minded organizations
  • To support excellence in education and to promote access to education and lifelong learning for women and girls
  • To advance the status of women, human rights, and gender equality
  • To stimulate the interests of members in community issues; to encourage active participation in such affairs by women; and to provide an opportunity for effective, concerted action
  • To participate in the work of CFUW National, and CFUW BC Council
Benefits of Joining

There are many benefits in being a part of this group. They can be summarised as follows:

  • Advocacy – We work together speaking with a common voice for the rights and opportunities for women and girls locally, nationally and internationally
  • Learning – Our programs and special events foster our own learning.  Our Scholarships and Bursaries assist others in their learning
  • Friendship – fun dinners and lunches; interest groups ranging from book clubs to bridge, out ‘n about, to knitting; we have something for everyone with more new groups in development
