Message from our President, Jill Jones


We warmly welcome all women to join CFUW/Kanata. It is a non-profit organization where you will experience fun, friendship, and lifelong learning. We hold monthly meetings from September to May, which feature stimulating speakers. You are most welcome to visit us at a meeting.

Our club now has more than twenty interest groups who meet regularly, mostly in members' homes.  The variety of groups recognizes the diverse interests of our members and includes book discussion groups, mahjong, bridge players,  genealogy, current issues, guitar groovers, various dining groups, and outdoor adventures. 

CFUW Kanata is part of a world-wide organization which connects us to women across Canada and throughout the world.  CFUW was founded in 1919 and comprises nearly one hundred clubs across Canada with more than 6,500 members. The goals of CFUW are to pursue knowledge,  promote education, improve the status of women and human rights, and participate in public affairs in a spirit of cooperation and friendship. The international body, GWI, has similar goals and is also an active advocate at the United Nations and other international agencies.

CFUW/Kanata supports local university and college students through scholarships and awards. Many members enjoy helping to raise money for the scholarship fund in various ways. We also support two local charities: Chrysalis House Women’s Shelter and the Kanata Food Bank.

We always welcome new members to our club.

CFUW Kanata President, 2024-25
