The Honourable Lisa Dempster, Minister Responsible for Indigenous Affairs and Reconciliation, and the Honourable John Hogan, KC, Minister of Justice and Public Safety, were pleased to be invited to participate in the annual Provincial Indigenous Women’s Steering Committee Gathering, which took place on November 27 and 28 in Cormack.

Unique in Canada, the Gathering provides an opportunity for Indigenous women from throughout the province to connect and share experiences, current realities, future aspirations, and to identify measures necessary to aid in the improvement of the quality of life of Indigenous women and gender-diverse individuals in their communities.

The Office of Women and Gender Equality provided funding of $25,000 for the Gathering.

As a government, we are committed to collaborating with Indigenous Peoples to find solutions to very real concerns. From working together to prevent intimate partner violence through Clare’s Law, to engaging on the new policing transformation initiative, Indigenous women and gender-diverse individuals have an important role to play in improving justice and public safety in Newfoundland and Labrador.”
