CFUW-Ottawa Schedule of Club Activities 2020-2021


We will not be meeting in large numbers in person until it is safe.

CFUW-Ottawa is committed to finding ways to keep our members connected, while maintaining social distancing, during this pandemic. Please be assured that we are continuing to follow Public Health Guidelines, but also recognizing the varying comfort levels of our members regarding in-person meetings.

Due to the uncertainty surrounding public gatherings, it is important to regularly check this website for updated information and also to contact group convenors. Some groups may meet online but some may not, and some may be put on hold. Click here for a link to information for the various groups.

For information on using ZOOM please see the ZOOM tab in the Member-Only section of this website.

In order to keep our members safe, please stay updated on recommended COVID-19  health measures via the following links:

COVID-19 Waiver

Upon the advice and recommendation of CFUW-National, our Ottawa Club Board of Directors approved the use of a signed waiver for all members and guests who participate in, ‘in person’ CFUW-Ottawa Club activities. You are likely familiar with these kinds of waivers if you have seen your doctor, dentist and in other places.

This may or may not affect you in the groups you are in now, but click here for an explanation of the process if and when you decide to meet in person and for a copy of a printable PDF of the COVID Waiver. This policy will still be in effect until further notice.
