THUNDER BAY – “Chiefs across Ontario unequivocally support the idea that a women’s day of recognition is literally, and should be, every day, every second and everywhere. We must all put efforts forward eradicate the yolk of gender inequity and gender injustice,” states Ontario Regional Chief Isadore Day.

“I encourage our First Nations across Ontario, and all of our organizations that serve our communities, to lead by example by committing resources and efforts toward the creation of working environments that foster growth, safety, and the wellbeing of our Women and Girls,” concludes the Ontario Regional Chief.

“The Chiefs of Ontario will be hosting a “Women in Leadership” Summit in Ottawa from March 27-29 at which time women leaders will gather to discuss priority issues and ways to bring women and girls into clear focus on a number of policy fronts. I’m so thankful and encouraged by this as it will only serve to strengthen our communities and focus on securing a better future for Our First Nation Life-Givers,” comments Regional Chief Isadore Day.
