    Biographical history

    In 1949, members of the Vancouver University Club living on the North Shore formed the West Vancouver Women's Graduate Group as they no longer wished to commute to Vancouver to attend meetings. In 1956, the group voted to become affiliated with the Canadian Federation of University Women (CFUW) founded in 1919, and by 1957 the group became the West Vancouver University Women's Club. In 1989, structural changes to the Canadian Federation of University Women led to a consequent name change of the local group to Canadian Federation of University Women - West Vancouver. The Canadian Federation of University Women is a member of the International Federation of University Women.
