"Canadian Aboriginal women share this global experience of discrimination and violations of their fundamental rights, as evidenced by the high levels of violence against Aboriginal women, inadequate housing and income, and the low levels of employment, education, entrepreneurship and overall economic advancement. They rely more heavily on social assistance and are more likely to head up a single parent family than their male counterparts. Aboriginal women face socio- economic challenges unlike those faced by any other woman in the country."
"Where they will put their heads down to sleep each night, whether that place is warm, healthy and safe, whether it is where they want to be, and whether it will be available and can be paid for the next night and the next month, are not worries that the majority of Canadians have. For some segments of the population however, such worries frame and plague their waking moments, and disturb or even destroy the restorative value of sleep which others take for granted."
"The Native Women’s Association of Canada (NWAC) appreciates the invitation extended to National Aboriginal Organization leaders to meet with the Prime Minister and Premiers prior to this First Minister’s Meeting, and to focus this meeting on Aboriginal issues. NWAC has worked for over 34 years to enhance, promote, and foster the social, economic, cultural and political well-being of Aboriginal women in Canada.
