Québec Government and Québec Native Women Quarterly Meetings

November 10, 2021

Québec Government – The Secrétariat aux affaires autochtones and Quebec Native Women (QNW) have decided to hold quarterly meetings. The meetings will make it possible to define solutions for the priority issues faced by the Indigenous women and girls represented by the group, which include:

  • health,
  • wellbeing,
  • employment,
  • poverty,
  • justice,
  • domestic and family violence, and
  • the fight against racism and discrimination.

The creation of this discussion platform will allow Quebec Native Women to work with decision-making authorities within the Québec government and to defend the interests and concerns of First Nations women and girls throughout Québec, whether living in Indigenous communities or urban areas. Both parties expect significant actions and change to emerge from the partnership, with the goal of raising the socio-economic and political conditions of Indigenous and non-Indigenous women to the same level
