Get Involved

Each Fall members and staff from Canada and Afghanistan gather for the CW4WAfghan Annual Symposium and Annual General Meeting (AGM). This event, held in a different Canadian location each year, brings together volunteers, Chapter members, community partners and anyone with a passion for women’s rights and education for girls and women in Afghanistan.

The Symposium is a forum to connect and share ideas and to hear from expert speakers that help us explore and learn more about the importance of universal human rights in Afghanistan and what we can do as global citizens to support education.

The Symposium and AGM has been held in Calgary, Alberta (2004-2007 and 2018); Kingston, Ontario (2008); Vancouver, British Columbia (2009); Kelowna, British Columbia (2010); Oakville, Ontario (2011); Pictou, Nova Scotia (2012); Victoria, British Columbia (2013); Winnipeg, Manitoba (2014); Banff, Alberta (2015); Ottawa, Ontario (2016); Toronto, Ontario (2018); and Harrison Hot Springs, British Columbia (2019). In 2020, we hosted our first virtual symposium, due to the pandemic.
