The Urban Aboriginal Summit will utilize a process of facilitated discussions to gather your ideas and recommendations on how the Aboriginal Council of Winnipeg can make itself relevant to you and your families.

We will also explore opportunities for restructuring the Council. Two examples of these possible changes to the ACW By-Law are as follows:

  • Lower the age requirement for membership to sixteen (16).
  • Create a membership category for Aboriginal organizations.

The first proposed change would open the door to a higher level of participation by an important and fast growing segment of our community in Winnipeg Youth.

The second proposal would recognize the important roles that our urban Aboriginal agencies play in our community and the value of their constituents. It could clarify our relationship to each other and bring consistency and a higher degree of regularity and formaility to our interaction with each other on behalf of broader community interest.

This Summit is offered at no cost to registrants and a Traditional Feast lunch will be provided.
