National Women’s Conference

CUPE National is hosting the National Women’s Conference – CUPE Women: Leading, Organizing, Resisting. This will take place from March 12-15, 2023, in Vancouver, Canada.  It is a four-day event that brings together CUPE women from across the country. Together, we can continue to support and build women’s empowerment in the union or workplace. This is a great opportunity to connect with other CUPE leaders and activists to explore a wide range of topics including gender equality and women’s rights in a variety of communities.

If you are interested in attending, please email us at for more details and information. The conference will open with an evening plenary at 5:30pm on March 12th and close at noon on March 15th. A meet and mingle with light refreshments will take place before the conference opens on Sunday from 4:00 – 5:30pm. Registration is limited to women and gender diverse people who feel comfortable in a space centered on women’s issues, experiences, and identities.

Registration closes at the end of the day on Friday, February 24. This is a firm deadline to allow sufficient time to plan the conference.

In Solidarity,

Cassandra Shum
Chair, Component Women’s Committee
