Indigenous Peoples Sub-Committee

CFUW recognizes past and ongoing forms of colonialism experienced by First Nations, Métis and Inuit peoples. We aim, through research, learning projects, calls to action, events and partnerships, to support Indigenous Peoples’ rights. CFUW’s has a designated scholarship that aims to support Indigenous women undertaking graduate studies. CFUW is committed to learning more about the issues facing Indigenous Peoples and how we can offer support.

What does Reconciliation mean for CFUW?

For CFUW, reconciliation means learning about the historical discrimination and dispossession faced by Indigenous Peoples. Our organization is committed to building relationships with First Nations, Métis and Inuit communities. CFUW is listening to the recommendations of Indigenous community members and activists on how we can show support and solidarity in fostering relationships and respect between non-Indigenous and Indigenous peoples.
