Native Women’s Association of Canada


 

The Native Women’s Association of Canada (NWAC) is one of Canada’s National Aboriginal Organizations and represents Aboriginal women, particularly First Nations and Métis women. NWAC has representation in meetings of Canadian leaders and is generally viewed as the national voice representing Aboriginal women in Canada.

NWAC was founded in 1974 as an aggregate of 13 Aboriginal women’s groups from coast to coast to coast, with the goals of preserving Aboriginal culture, achieving equal opportunity for Aboriginal women, and having a role in shaping legislation relevant to Aboriginal women. NWAC is led by a President and Board of Directors, who cooperate and exchange information with local organizations. In September 2009 Jeannette Corbiere Lavell was elected as the organization’s new President. The NWAC Board of Directors works with the President and its provincial/territorial member associations and to make local and national recommendations on Aboriginal programs and initiatives.
