Histoire administrative

The Canadian Federation of University Women - Coquitlam (CFUW Coquitlam) is a local chapter of the national Canadian Federation of University Women that was granted charter status in April, 1969. CFUW Coquitlam is a voluntary, non-profit, self-funded organization that offers a forum for educated women to meet for camaraderie, intellectual curiosity, involvement, and service to the community.

CFUW membership includes predominantly graduates from across Canada and abroad. CFUW- Coquitlam encourages informed and active participation in public affairs though education, advocacy, and action. Through Graduate Women International (GWI), the Canadian Federation of University Women provides leadership and support to women around the world to participate in decision making at the local, national, and international levels.

Over the years, CFUW Coquitlam has taken on several significant projects, including helping to establish the first Coquitlam Public Library. In its current incarnation, the club manages several bursary funds that assist with the costs of post secondary education. The club provides bursaries to each of the nine secondary schools in School District #43, as well as two art scholarships, and administers the distribution of the Millennium Bursary through Douglas College and a bursary for Simon Fraser University students through an endowment fund established by the club in 1996. CFUW Coquitlam also offers a number of interest groups and events to its members, including book clubs, education groups, lunch groups, movie nights, and walking groups, among others. Monthly general meetings feature guest speakers and the conduct of regular business.
