Province Proclaims Canadian Federation Of University Women Day

Released on September 14, 2018

The Government of Saskatchewan has proclaimed September 14, 2018 as Canadian Federation of University Women (CFUW) Day.

“Education is the key to employment opportunities and entrepreneurship,” Advanced Education Minister and Minister Responsible for the Status of Women Tina Beaudry-Mellor said.  “The scholarships and grants provided by CFUW benefit the recipients, and encourage women and girls in their post-secondary pursuits.”

Since its founding in 1919, CFUW is an organization that works to improve the status of women and girls by promoting human rights, quality public education, justice and peace.  There are CFUW clubs in every Canadian province with nearly 10,000 graduate, student and associate members.  CFUW has more than 170 members in six clubs across Saskatchewan.

“Canadian Federation of University Women is an organization with links locally, nationally and internationally, to improve the status of women, and to promote human rights, quality education and social justice,” CFUW Regional Director for Saskatchewan Mary Rowan said.  “The feminist movement is now a global phenomenon, but there is still work to do.  CFUW exemplifies the power of women working together through friendships, advocacy, social events and empowerment.  This year is our centennial anniversary in Saskatoon and 2019 is the centennial of CFUW nationally.  We hope to share our knowledge and skills to make a difference for women for many years to come.”

CFUW and its clubs give away nearly $1 million to women in post-secondary studies annualy.  The non-partisan, voluntary, non-governmental organization also provides funding for library and creative arts awards, and offers life-long learning opportunities for its members.

CFUW Day has been proclaimed by the province since 2011 to recognize the work, scholarships and grants provided by Saskatchewan CFUW clubs.  Today, CFUW clubs in Saskatchewan provide thousands in scholarships to post-secondary students, plus grants to music and science festivals, early learning centres and other community projects.
