CANFAR Clubs is a national peer-to-peer program aimed at fostering the next generation of young leaders in activism, volunteerism and philanthropy to promote HIV education and awareness on university and college campuses.
Over the last 15 years, hundreds of university and college students have shown extraordinary leadership and dedication to ending the HIV epidemic in Canada by forming and leading a CANFAR Club on their university or college campus.
Today, young people remain one of the most vulnerable demographics in the HIV epidemic.
CANFAR Clubs help our Foundation reach thousands of young Canadians to spread our message of prevention and awareness, all while raising funds to support innovative research. CANFAR Clubs are a critical national effort to educate Canadian students about HIV/AIDS through various fundraising and awareness initiatives.
If you are interested in starting a CANFAR Club or have questions about this program, please contact us.
It was so rewarding being involved with such a great organization and seeing what an impact CANFAR can make in a community and around the country. We had such a great time with CANFAR Dal!

I loved getting to hold a leadership position on Dal's CANFAR society. It was a great experience to be the primary organizer for the events and then see all the work we put into them unfold. I will miss this role!
– Kara Hawker, 2018-2019 Co-President, CANFAR Dalhousie
Throughout my 4 years at CANFAR, I can without a doubt say that this year was one of the most exciting and successful years for CANFAR McMaster. I hope future students can continue our events and bring a lot of success to CANFAR!
