Welcome to the MLUWC!

Founded in 1957, the Montreal Lakeshore University Women’s Club (MLUWC) is a non-profit organization of more than 200 women graduates. Monthly meetings and a wide variety of interest groups encourage fellowship and stimulate interest in current issues. Our goals are to use our education and professional training to:

MLUWC works to influence public policy through advocacy and encourages education by offering scholarships and bursaries.
