The Ottawa Aboriginal Coalition is comprised of local Indigenous service organizations, as well as a representative of the Métis community.
The members of the Ottawa Aboriginal Coalition recognize that we have a shared responsibility to participate in the building of the community that we want to live in. The Coalition is open to all Ottawa Aboriginal service organizations in Ottawa.
As a Coalition, the Executive Directors, come together and work for the collective benefit of the Aboriginal community and respond to the specific needs of the community.
In our work we respect:
1. the cultural diversity of the community which is made up of First Nation, Inuit and Métis people;
2. the mandates of each organization.
As members of the Coalition we recognize that when we work together, our collective voice is stronger and one of our primary tools of work is through the building and maintaining of relationships and partnerships.
