Congratulations are extended to the University Women’s Club of North York for being one of only four clubs across Canada to receive the New Members Award announced at the National CFUW Annual General Meeting in June. Kudos are extended to our Membership Convenor and the Membership team. UWCNY welcomed 25 new members last year.
Our Club accepted the 2016/2017 CFUW Ontario Council Advocacy Award for participation in: Universal Pharmacare Resolution, Equal Pay Day Rally, Bill C-242, writing letters to MP’s and Early Learning and Child Care and its partnership with Toronto clubs to fight Toronto City Hall’s proposed cuts to childcare. Kudos go to our Status of Women and Human Rights Group for their fine leadership. We were one of four clubs throughout Ontario to receive the Advocacy Award.
Last year’s President and Vice President were proud to accept a 2016 CFUW New Member Award on behalf of our club. UWCNY was recognized for achieving a 13 per cent increase in new members in 2015/2016.
