McGill University hosted on 10-12 January 2014 a first Canadian-version of a Conference for Undergraduate Women in Physics (CCUWiP). This conference was modeled after the successful CUWiP conference series centrally organized by the American Physical Society. We will describe the goals of this kind of conference, organizational details, and report on the event held at McGill. Thoughts about the future of these kind of events in Canada will also be discussed.
