Administrative history

The Canadian Federation of University Women (C.F.U.W.)-Delta was formed in 1966 by a gathering of interested women in Ladner who held university degrees. The Canadian Federation of University Women is a member of the International Federation of University Women.
The objectives of the C.F.U.W.- Delta is ‘to stimulate intellectual activity in university women; to promote interest in public affairs and to afford an opportunity for the expression of united opinion; to facilitate social intercourse and co operation among university women’. The constitution was formed on Janurary 11, 1967. The charter also specifies that each member of the club must hold a university degree and be a resident of Delta.

The charter members of the C.F.U.W.-Delta were; Mrs. John Husband (Stella), Mrs. Barrie Hamilton (Phoebe), Mrs. Frank Peto (Ruth), Mrs. Austin Frith ( Mary), Mrs. Kenneth Hardy (Marie), Mrs. Don Swenson (Pat), Mrs. Paul Swenson (Gerry), Mrs. Bruce McIntyre (Sharon), Mrs. Kenneth Sotvedt (Wendy), Mrs. Pat Shields. The executive was elected Nov. 9, 1966 and were comprised of: President: Stella Husband; Vice President: Phoebe Hamilton; Secretary: Ruth Peto; Treasurer: Donna Cole; Social Convenor: Mary Frith; Membership: Joan Madill.

In 1981, C.F.U.W.- Delta began to draw in additional members in North Delta which branched out to form C.F.U.W.- North Delta in October 1981. With the formation of the North Delta club in October 1981, the C.F.U.W.-Delta changed it’s name to C.F.U.W.- South Delta and amended their constitution. C.F.U.W.-South Delta continues to operate under the same constitution in the community today. The Club organizes and hosts various events to fundraise for charitable organizations such as the Delta Hospital Auxiliary as well as providing student bursaries. One of their major fundraising events for many years was an annual book sale. The executive members hold regular monthly meetings in each other’s homes in Delta. An endowment fund was set up under the name of Laura Fowler in 1994-95.The C.F.U.W.- South Delta club is still in operation today.
