The Native Women’s Association of Canada (NWAC) is delighted to announce that the Canadian Union of Public Employees (CUPE), which is Canada’s largest union with over 633,000 members from across the country, will be holding it’s annual ‘Rock for Public Services,’ concert on November 14, 2015 at the TD Place in Ottawa. This year, CUPE has designated NWAC as the recipient for funds collected from people who attend this ‘free’ concert by way of their donations.

This annual concert is organized by CUPE to acknowledge the public service employees working in the Ottawa/Gatineau region. Appearing at the concert will be some of Canada’s greatest musicians and singers such as the Sam Roberts Band, Matt Mays and Amanda Rheaume.

“NWAC is very grateful that CUPE is supportive of NWAC and of the work we do for our Sisters in Spirit and wishes to thank the organizers and performers who will make this event a great success and an unforgettable evening for many,” stated NWAC president Dawn Lavell Harvard.

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 and Métis women within First Nation, Métis and Canadian societies. As a national organization representing Aboriginal women since 1974, NWAC’s mandate is to achieve equality for all Aboriginal women in Canada.
