The First Nations Women’s Council continues to work to advance the well-being of women, children, families and communities. This includes numerous issues such as Missing and Murdered indigenous Women and Girls; human trafficking; and stopping the sexual exploitation of children, girls and women; child welfare, domestic violence; and gender equity.

It is essential women re-occupy a sacred place in our families, communities and nations, and have a strong leadership role within the Assembly of Manitoba Chiefs through the First Nations Women’s Council (FNCW).

The FNCW expanded to 11 members in 2017. We look forward to the continued support of the efforts of Manitoba First Nations leaders of the contributions of First Nations women in resolving the issues that affect all First Nations people to ensure healthy and strong individuals, families and nations.

This includes working with the AMC’s Grandmothers’ Council.
