The University Women's Club of Toronto envisioning, engaging, empowering

Join us at the University Women's Club of Toronto. We are the very first University Women's Club in Canada, formed in 1903. We are so very proud of our storied history and are a vital, active group today.

We provide opportunities for the growth and advancement of women through the pursuit of intellectual, cultural and social interests.We are strongly committed to community service, actively advocating and providing financial support to improve the lives of women and girls. We celebrate diversity and welcome all female graduates from any University or College worldwide, as well as professional women who share our interests and female students enrolled in fulltime academic studies towards a degree.

Our members enjoy a wide range of activities: bridge, book groups, music appreciation, speaker luncheons and dinners, discussion groups, cultural lectures and outings, afternoons at the symphony.

See a more detailed description of each of the activities under their specific headings.


The University Women’s Club of Toronto is dedicated to supporting the education of girls and women. Our work involves the awarding of grants to students leaving high school and to those continuing at college and university. We support students with awards for continuing their studies and for the costs of residence. We are in a transition period with our charitable work evaluating the amounts of the awards. The awarding of bursaries and grants will always be our priority, as it has been historically. We also have begun a considerable outreach program to support Romero House for refugees, Sistering and Indspire. We continue to work towards mentoring and greater involvement with the student winners and the women and children at Romero and Sistering. The work with refugees, women in difficult circumstances and indigenous education is a new initiative and we are very excited about all of the possibilities not only to help but also to learn.
