Background Paper: Canada - Aboriginal Peoples Roundtable - Economic Opportunities Sectoral Session [Native Women's Association of Canada, NWAC]

Native Women's Association of Canada
Year of publication: 

"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."
