Welcome to the MLUWC!

Founded in 1957, the Montreal Lakeshore University Women’s Club (MLUWC) is a non-profit organization of more than 200 women graduates. Monthly meetings and a wide variety of interest groups encourage fellowship and stimulate interest in current issues. Our goals are to use our education and professional training to:

  • foster cultural, social and political awareness
  • develop sound educational values
  • perform community service

MLUWC works to influence public policy through advocacy and encourages education by offering scholarships and bursaries.

MLUWC is a member of the Canadian Federation of University Women (CFUW), a non-partisan national volunteer organization with over 9,000 members in 112 Clubs across Canada.  CFUW has special consultative status at the United Nations and representation at the Education Committee of the Canadian Commission to UNESCO.  As a member organization of CFUW, we are committed to:

  • improving the status of women and girls
  • promoting education
  • advancing human rights, justice and peace

CFUW is the largest affiliate of the Graduate Women International (IFUW) an organization founded in 1919 which works to empower women and girls through lifelong education for leadership, decision-making and peace.

Other MLUWC affiliations include membership in the Montreal Council of Women (MCW) and the Virginia Gildersleeve International Fund (VGIF).
