Our Work Ensuring that the concerns and perspectives of First Nations women inform the work of the AFN.
The Women’s Council works with the AFN Secretariat to ensure that the concerns and perspectives of First Nations women inform the work of the AFN. Council members hold portfolio responsibilities and participate in a wide range of activities and initiatives relevant to First Nations women.
The purposes of the Women’s Council are:
- To unify and create healthy, happy, and harmonious communities through cultural identity and cultural teachings based on: respect, love, courage, wisdom, honesty, humility and truth;
- To establish a gender-balanced perspective within First Nations communities, and within all entities dealing with First Nations, that honours the rights and aspirations of First Nations women.
