Celebrating 70 Years of Advocacy and Fellowship in Strarford!


CFUW Stratford was founded in 1954 with an initial group of 30 women. These women fought for access to post secondary education for all women. Today, we welcome all women in and around Stratford, those with a university or college degree as well as women who have followed less traditional career paths, who share the CFUW goals.

Now, CFUW Stratford is a non-profit, non-partisan organization of women working to promote lifelong education, to improve the status of women and girls, and to enable women to effect positive change for a peaceful, sustainable future.

Our roughly 70 members embody more than 70 years of remarkable dedication to both the club and the community.

It is our great privilege to share in the lives and stories of our Indigenous Peoples on this beautiful land, the site of thousands of years of human activity, much of which has been the work of Indigenous women who have maintained cultures rich in knowledge, history, skills and environmental stewardship. We are grateful. We acknowledge that the land we stand upon today is the traditional territory of the Anishinabe, the Haudenosonee and the Neutral peoples. We recognize the First Peoples continued stewardship of the land and water.

Today many Indigenous Peoples continue to call this land home and act as its stewards. And this responsibility extends to all peoples, to share and care for this land for generations to come.
