Violence against Aboriginal women is a pressing issue and is of great concern to the Aboriginal people in New Brunswick.
The contributing factors and solutions to addressing this issue for Aboriginal women in New Brunswick, living both on and off First Nations communities, require a coordinated and comprehensive approach with leadership and involvement of many different stakeholders.
A strategic framework to assist with addressing this central concern was developed in coordination with the Women’s Issues Branch and members of the New Brunswick Advisory Committee to End Violence against Aboriginal Women.
This Advisory Committee to the Minister on Aboriginal women was formalized in 2006 and has been working with the Women’s Issues Branch to identify issues and develop solutions to improve the situation of Aboriginal women around the province.
