    Regional Women's Shelter

    About Anishnaabe Kwewag Gamig Inc.Many hands in a circle, palms up

    Our shelter provides a safe, supportive, temporary alternative to a violent home for Aboriginal and non-Aboriginal women and their children (16 years and under) who are seeking refuge from abuse.

    Located in a First Nation, we help women and children to overcome the unique obstacles faced by those who access our services. We offer a blend of Aboriginal traditional healing techniques and conventional forms of counseling to both women and children during their stay at the shelter.

    We empower women through the use of women’s circles, individual counseling and support, to help them decide on the appropriate steps for them to take on their path to healing.

    We offer many services including Advocacy, Referrals, Court Accompaniment, Confidential Crisis Intervention, Emergency Transportation and a comprehensive children’s program facilitated by a Child/Youth Counselor. Our clients are also assisted with accessing legal, financial, housing and medical resources.

    Counselors are available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Our shelter serves South Eastern Ontario including 8 First Nations, has 14 beds and can accommodate a combination of 15 women and children for a maximum stay of up to 8 weeks. We are funded through The Aboriginal Healing & Wellness Strategy Toronto, along with public donations.
