CFUW is a grass-roots organisation that advocates for public policy changes based on resolutions that are approved by our membership at the Annual General Meetings each year. Resolutions that are national or international in scope, and conforming to CFUW’s purpose and mission, are researched and proposed by CFUW Clubs or National Committees. The subsequent adopted resolutions or “CFUW policy” form our framework for action and advocacy. The adopted resolutions make up the CFUW Policy Book, which houses resolutions adopted by our membership since 1964.
