Lalana Paul brings added perspective to the Advisory Council on the Status of Women

Lalana Paul says she is excited to bring the voice of aboriginal women and her own life experience to the PEI Advisory Council on the Status of Women.

Originally from Vancouver, she spent years helping abused and battered women in the city’s Lower East Side piece their lives back together. As program coordinator for the Helping Spirit Lodge Society, she helped women find housing and build the necessary skills to re-enter the workforce.

”When I heard about this opportunity I thought ‘Status of Women? Oh absolutely that’s incredible,’” she said. “I always wanted to get back into that kind of work.”

She remembers seeing women enter her 16-week program looking and feeling dejected, but after four months of counseling, clothing and nutrition, even the look on their faces changed.

“It was incredible to see the change – I loved the work I did,” she said. “As a woman I like to help other women see their own power, their own capability.”
