Policy Sectors

We are a national Indigenous organization representing political voices of Indigenous women, girls, and gender-diverse people in Canada, inclusive of First Nations—on and off reserve, status and non-status, disenfranchised—Inuit, and Métis. We were founded on a collective goal to enhance, promote, and foster the social, economic, cultural, and political well-being of Indigenous women in their respective communities and Canadian societies.


The Native Women’s Association of Canada invites you to help us honour and remember the children and families left behind and the survivors of residential schools. Please visit our offices at 120 Prom. Du Portage, Gatineau on 30th of September.

The latest edition of NWAC’s e-newsletter, Shining the Spotlight, is here! Each month, we highlight significant achievements undertaken by each of our departments. 


The latest issue of our e-zine, Kci-Niwesq, is now out! In this edition, we explore and look at one of our achievements, the new Social, Cultural, and Economic Innovation Centre in downtown Gatineau, Quebec, which we've recently opened to the public in June this year.


The past year will stand out as one of incredible achievements in the history of the Native Women’s Association of Canada (NWAC). We have set up a beautiful new headquarters. We have expanded our team and our scope of work. And, we have grown in stature nationally and internationally.


The Native Women’s Association of Canada (NWAC) and Sephora Canada are pleased to announce findings of a first-of-its-kind roundtable conversation about Indigenous beauty, which was held in October 2021. The roundtable resulted in a historic conversation to support decolonizing beauty standards and uplifting Indigenous women and 2SLGBTQQAI+ people, who told us they want a more inclusive, equitable, and representative beauty industry reflective of true diversity of Indigenous communities across Canada.
