Family Violence and Human Trafficking Prevention Program

Working together to address  gender-based violence against women, IWS in partnership with the Manitoba Metis Federation (MMF), the Ma-Mow-We-Tak Friendship Centre (Thompson), and the Joy Smith Foundation are creating preventive, supportive, and accessible resources and programs for Metis Women. Our goal is to educate, support and promote Metis communities in Northern Manitoba as we address the lack of knowledge, resources, and recovery options available to women, 2SLGBTQ+ women-identifying individuals, and youth.

IWS is working in conjunction with other Indigenous organizations and governments. IWS helped host the Valentine’s Day 2020 Memorial March for MMIWG2S. Working together, we will combat gender-based violence on human trafficking, missing and murdered Metis and Indigenous women and girls.
