Ottawa, ON – The Native Women’s Association of Canada (NWAC) is honoured to announce a new Ontario representative to its nationwide Provincial and Territorial Member Associations (PTMAs) and Board of Directors, the Temiskaming Native Women's Support Group (TNWSG).

Executive Director, Ann Batisse, traveled from TNWSG’s headquarters on Matachewan First Nation on Thursday, September 5th to meet with NWAC’s Executive Director Lynne Groulx at the NWAC national office in Ottawa.

Since its incorporation in 1997, TNWSG is mandated to represent the worldview and needs of Indigenous women and their families. Their membership will filter the grassroots voices of Indigenous women, girls and gender-diverse people within Ontario to the national level at NWAC.

This membership will not only strengthen NWAC and TNWSG, but will strengthen the voices of the people we collectively represent. This will further the capacity of both organizations to deliver social, economic, cultural and health services.

NWAC welcomes TNWSG and encourages you to learn more about this organization and the services they provide by visiting their website.

Welcome TNWSG!

NWAC will be celebrating its 44th Annual General Assembly this weekend where all of the NWAC Board of Directors and Delegates will gather and we can welcome TNWSG to the entire NWAC community.
