Advocacy

CFUW members rally around issues of national, provincial and local importance and demonstrate the potential impact for communities across the country.  Our network of volunteers works to identify issues, share knowledge with members and supporters and advocate on behalf of the CFUW’s vision and mission.  Resolutions that are national or international in scope are approved at the AGM by the membership following the resolutions process become CFUW policy.  Adopted resolutions form the framework for action and advocacy.
