The Assembly of First Nations

The Assembly of First Nations

The Assembly of First Nations (AFN) is the national representative organization of the First Nations in Canada. There are over 630 First Nation's communities in Canada. The AFN Secretariat, is designed to present the views of the various First Nations through their leaders in areas such as: Aboriginal and Treaty Rights, Economic Development, Education, Languages and Literacy, Health, Housing, Social Development, Justice, Taxation, Land Claims, Environment, and a whole array of issues that are of common concern which arise from time to time. www.afn.ca

 

Nishnawbe Aski Nation

Nishnawbe Aski Nation

One of the major affiliations Webequie maintains is the one it has with Nishnawbe Aski Nation (NAN). NAN evolved out of Grand Council Treaty #9, which was established in 1973 as the regional organization representing the political, social, and economic interests of 49 First Nations in Northern Ontario who are signatories to Treaty No. 9 and Treaty No. 5 (in Ontario).  In 1982, the name changed to Nishnawbe Aski Nation.  The main objective of NAN is to represent the social and economic aspirations of NAN people at all levels of government in Canada and Ontario until such time as real effective action is taken to remedy the problems and challenges experienced by the people of Nishnawbe Aski  and to permit the forces of self-determination to establish our spiritual, cultural, social, and economic independence. www.nan.on.ca

 

Matawa First Nations Management

Matawa First Nations Management

The second major affiliation Webequie has is the one with Matawa First Nations Management. The Matawa First Nations Management, was formed in 1988 as a Tribal Council to provide technical advisory services for the Matawa First Nations communities situated to the north and north east of the city of Thunder Bay. The name “Matawa” was chosen by the Chiefs’ because in Ojibway and Cree languages it is used to refer to the meeting of the rivers. www.matawa.on.ca

Nishnawbe Aski Nation Legal Aid

Innovative and creative programs have made NALSC a leader and at times, an example, in alternatives to justice programs, and have met with success in these areas. www.nanlegal.on.ca
