CFUW West Vancouver Interest Groups provide opportunities for members to meet, pursue common interests and build community and fellowship.
Climate Change – NEW
There is NO Planet B and we have to look after it or there will be dire consequences in the future. We must educate ourselves: we must talk about Climate Change with our friends and families. That way we can reach out to a far wider group of concerned citizens. The interest group would become informed on actions we can take as individuals, communicate our concerns to our politicians and local media, advocate to our friends and neighbours. The plan is for the group to meet on a Wednesdays on the month at 2:00pm or 7:00 pm depending on the availability of members. Projected start date: May 2022.
Dames Who Dine
Usually 7 pm on a Wednesday evening near the end of the month. Members will eat dinner in a variety of restaurants on the North Shore, each paying their own bill. A toonie collection will be taken to fund local charities that support women.
International Studies Group
Lively monthly discussions on international issues based on individual readings, viewings and visits. Meets the 4th Tuesday of the month at 7:30 PM.
Issues and Action Group

The Group meets the 3rd Friday of each month September to June at 10 am.
Reflective Memoir Writing
We are creating our memoirs, contributing to the Canadian movement of “her-story”. Through memoir reading and reflective writing, we share with one another and through self-led researched learnings we improve our skills and understanding.
