Red River Michif Women's Council
Red River Michif Women's Council’s purpose is to promote a greater understanding of the traditions and roles of Metis women in the Province of Manitoba. The Red River Michif Women's Council acknowledges the widening gap between Métis women and other women. Métis women who are leaders at the community level provide valuable leadership on ways that their community can positively apply policies and recommendations to make significant change in their lives. As a member of the Métis National Council of Women, there is a growing network, a willingness to share, co-operate and strategize within our province and with other regions. It is important to value, support and learn from those who have taken on the challenge leadership roles at the regional and communities level. This leadership is an asset to Métis women participation and more engaged communities.

Aboriginal Headstart Program

Kermode Friendship Society Aboriginal Head Start

The Aboriginal Head Start Program at the Kermode Friendship Society in Terrace BC is a brand new program that the whole community is very excited about. We are in our second year and serve 40 children of Aboriginal descent in two preschool classes Monday to Thursday, with a staff of 7 employees.


We have a good working relationship with other community programs such as the CAPC parenting program, Early Childhood Development program and the Child Development Center, our licensing office including the nutritionist and environmental health office, and the School District.


The Head Start Program is committed to assisting Aboriginal children to develop with the best possible support. Everyone in the program - our staff, Parent Advisory Council, families, and our community - all play a significant role in the life of every child that enters our program.


Children need to discover, enjoy, play, explore and have an opportunity to learn new things. Aboriginal Head Start is something to celebrate!
