The founding members of the University Women’s Club (UWC) came together fueled by a desire to maintain relationships after graduation and advance women’s place in the community. Many early members achieved firsts for women in Canada by becoming doctors, scientists, judges, and politicians, paving the way for future generations.
As stewards of Ralph Connor House National Historic Site, our members have a physical connection to a time in history when women began to demand their right to full participation in society. The house is an inspiration and constant reminder of these trailblazers.
We have a proud affiliation with the Canadian Federation of University Women (CFUW), which allows our members to honour those who achieved hard-earned rights early on by continuing to advocate on critical issues affecting women today.
