The Native Women’s Association of Canada (NWAC) is founded on the collective goal to enhance, promote, and foster the social, economic, cultural and political well-being of First Nations, Métis and Inuit women within First Nation, Métis and Inuit Canadian societies. NWAC is an aggregate of thirteen Native women’s organizations from across Canada and was incorporated as a non-profit organization in 1974. Much like a “Grandmother’s Lodge”, we as aunties, mothers, sisters, brothers and relatives collectively recognize, respect, promote, defend and enhance our Native ancestral laws, spiritual beliefs, language and traditions given to us by the Creator.

You want to build a career with an organization that does good work and accomplishes great things – a company that will give you every opportunity to be!

On behalf of the NWAC President, NWAC’s Board of Directors, NWAC Staff and the Indigenous women and families we serve, we thank you for your generous support!
