Journey to Reconciliation

The Alberta Council of Women’s Shelters is committed to reconciliation with Indigenous peoples, and the safety of Indigenous women, their families and their communities. We are dedicated to ensuring that Indigenous voices are heard, considered, and inform decision-making processes at ACWS.

ACWS will never simply make statements about reconciliation. We will take action.
