Families, Women, Men, Youth & Seniors

Guiding Principle: Families within the community are supported in their life decisions to be healthy and have access to a quality life.

This sector encompasses all aspects that provide for the achievement and sustainability of a strong family unit. The objectives in this sector work toward ensuring Aboriginal control and delivery of programs and services for the Aboriginal community. Current census data indicates that Aboriginal youth are the fastest growing segment of the Aboriginal population. Another objective of the work plan is to provide for a solid foundation for ACW's relationship with the surrounding community and a strong network of organizations working together to improve the lives of the Aboriginal community of Winnipeg.
