Georgian Bay Native Womens' Association

The major tenet that the GBNWA is based on is the unity of all Anishnabe women, regardless of legal categories. The main concerns of the Association are the preservation, and promotion of, Anishnabe culture, language, and heritage.

GBNWA Provides Programming for All Stages of Life


The Canadian Prenatal Nutrition Program provides community, culturally grounded programming and services to improve the health outcomes of Indigenous mothers and their babies (pre-natal to 18 months). Programs are designed to also include fathers and extended family where relevant. CPNP helps support the needs of pregnant women facing challenges that could potentially put their health and the health of their infants at risk.


This program serves Indigenous infants, toddlers and their families through screening and culturally appropriate interventions and follow-up. This program strives to create opportunities to regain and retain the traditional knowledge that has supported Bimaadziwin (The Good Life) for our people.


The Community Action Program for Children is designed to promote the healthy development of children ages 0-6 years and their families. The program provides culturally appropriate support to families in the area of child health and development, positive parenting, promoting and building life skills and providing access to information, resources with an overall goal to promote health and wellbeing of Indigenous Families


This program offers pre-kindergarten readiness support to children by building on social skills, speech and language, fine and gross motor skills. The program strives to offer many supports that are individual to family needs.


This is a program for youth who have experienced violence or abusive relationships. Participants will benefit in the Red Road for Children and Youth program.


Waabano Kwe in Ojibwe translates to “New Dawn Woman”. This program provides women and children, who are victims of violence or within the child welfare system, with opportunities to identify and establish their knowledge and understanding of what is Bimaadziwin “a good life.


This Program provides culturally relevant support and programming to Indigenous seniors living in their own homes. Provide access to services, assist in keeping seniors in their home longer, and access to traditional ceremonies and teachings by a knowledgeable teacher.


This program supports Indigenous women in a culturally rooted, holistic way, so that they are better able to navigate through the complex systems encountered when experiencing involvement with child welfare. The Program supports Indigenous women to create, build upon, and share their “bundles” and provides safe spaces, tailored to the individual woman and their family.


Ska Be Support Worker will provide support services to improve the health and well-being of Indigenous seniors and persons with disabilities. Our goal is to achieve a good quality of life that is reflective of our members needs and their culture.
