Unfortunately all in-person meetings of the club including general meetings, study and interest group meetings, and our annual dinner are cancelled for the remainder of our Club year, due to the COVID-19 pandemic.  During this outbreak we are meeting virtually.

We still welcome new members. If you are considering joining UWCNY,  please email us at

Who are we?
The University Women’s Club of North York is a thriving club founded in 1951. We have over 200 members, who represent a wide variety of interests, disciplines and professional achievements. A woman of any age (no university degree necessary) who agrees with our goals can join. Click here to join.

Our North York club is also a member of the following organizations: CFUW Ontario,  CFUW, and GWI.  Find out more  in our Powerful Women newsletter.

Our Club condemns racism, violence, and injustice against Black, Indigenous, and People of Colour (BIPOC).  We are committed to learning from the voices of those who are being systematically excluded and disadvantaged. It is time for change. In the words of Martin Luther King Jr: “there comes a time when silence is betrayal.” 

We stand committed to the development and implementation of strategies and best-practices that dismantle racism and ethnic oppression within all aspects of our society.


What do we do?
Advocate for the improvement of the status of women, early learning and child care.
Raise funds  for local, national and international charities and women’s scholarships.
Participate in community outreach.
Expand our horizons attending our monthly Speakers Series.
Learn something new and make friends at our Interest Groups.
