Community education/development

In the spring of 1994, a group of women came together to explore the need for supports and services for women and girls in Muskoka. Their commitment to better life opportunities and increased options for women and girls in our community led to the establishment of Community YWCA of Muskoka in the fall of 1997. Two programs, Women in Business and Girlz Unplugged, were developed and launched in these formative years, providing the foundation for many programs and services to follow.

Today, YWCA Muskoka champions equality for women and girls and supports individuals at critical turning points in their lives. YWCA Muskoka’s continuum of service supports adults and youth in transition, improving their capacity to thrive. Uniquely, we are a YWCA without walls, serving over 1500 individuals in 25 locations throughout Muskoka. We take programs and services to people versus people to programs, an effective program delivery model in a geography that spans 4761km2.

The Saskatchewan First Nations’ Women’s Commission (SFNWC) is the recognized regional voice for the advancement of First Nations’ women’s and children’s rights in Saskatchewan. The SFNWC is committed to the development and sustenance of healthy communities by which all First Nations people benefit. The SFNWC takes the lead on certain issues that are considered “women’s and children’s issues” in mainstream society, although not dictated as such in First Nations communities because First Nations philosophy emphasizes collective as opposed to individual rights.

 

Historically, since the 1960’s First Nations’ Women in Saskatchewan have come together to discuss a variety of issues and the poor living conditions in which they had to endure. The Saskatchewan First Nations’ Women’s Commission (SFNWC) was formed in 2000, first as a Council, and in February 2004, the Chiefs-in-Assembly voted for the FSIN Convention Act to be amended to include the SFNWC as the seventh Commission. The FSIN Women’s Act was ratified at the June 2004 Chiefs-in-Assembly and is a formal piece of legislation that validates the ongoing movement of Saskatchewan First Nations’ Women.

 

Honoring the Treaties is a priority for Saskatchewan First Nations’ women's groups. The mandate of the Saskatchewan First Nations Women’s Commission is the development of First Nation Women’s rights and advocate to develop women’s strategic initiatives while respecting the Treaty process. In the past we have ensured this vision is met through:

A ten-member Board of Directors appointed by the Government of British Columbia governs Northern Health. The current chair of the NH Board is Dr. Charles Jago, who was appointed to the position in 2007.

 

While board members come from communities across the region, by-laws establish that their role is to make decisions to meet health needs for the entire region rather than representing a particular community or area. Some of the Board’s functions include (but are not limited to):

  • Governance and oversight responsibilities;
  • Setting overall strategic direction for the organization;
  • Approval of budget submissions and business plans submitted by staff;
  • Receiving progress reports on organizational activities and business plans;
  • Reviewing and approving capital plans;
  • Granting privileges for physicians to practice in Northern Health facilities, on the advice and recommendation of the Northern Health Medical Advisory Committee; and
  • Reviewing and approving overarching strategies to address aspects of the performance agreement Northern Health holds with the Province of British Columbia.

The Northern Health Board meets approximately every two months in regular session, with an open board meeting and public presentation session at all regular meetings. The board ensures that one meeting per year is held in a Northeast community with another in a Northwest community. The remaining meetings are held in the Northern Interior, usually in Prince George.
