The Indigenous Peoples’ Commission (IPC) is pleased to be participating and present at the 43rd Native Women’s Association (NWAC) Annual General Assembly in Edmonton, Alberta. IPC Vice-President Indigenous Women Lynn Geary will attend as an observer delegate. She is pleased to join delegates from across Canada and throughout Turtle Island in the traditional territory of the Cree peoples and Region 4 of the Métis Nation of Alberta.

“On behalf of the Indigenous Peoples Commission we recognize and acknowledge that the Native Women’s Association of Canada (NWAC) has been at the frontlines in carrying the strong women warrior spirit of our Nations. As grandmothers, mothers, sisters, aunties, daughters let’s work together to shift the narrative in this country by sharing our stories of strength, resiliency and success. We are at the height of the legacy of assimilation and colonization with #MMIWG, record number of our children in care and epidemic youth suicide in our communities. We need your leadership, more now than ever, to inspire our children and youth so we survive as indigenous peoples and have hope for a brighter future.” – Lisa Abbott, IPC Co-Chair (Female)

“I am very pleased to be attending the Native Women’s Association of Canada 43rd Annual General Assembly July 14-16, 2017, in Edmonton, AB representing both the Indigenous Peoples’ Commission and National Women’s Liberal Commission. The IPC has not sent a representative for several years and I am delighted to attend the NWAC AGA and renew acquaintances, create new ones and do outreach for both the IPC and NWLC. The NWAC AGA represents a great opportunity to network with Indigenous female community leaders gathered under one roof, share what the LPC has to offer Indigenous women and girls, and hear the latest issues and concerns of Indigenous women. I am here to listen and engage with other attendees and delegates. – Lynn Geary, IPC VP Women
