Ottawa Aboriginal Coalition Relationship Streams
The OAC has focused on establishing and maintaining strong and respectful relationships between the Aboriginal community and different levels of government, non-Aboriginal service organizations and amongst the Aboriginal organizations. For success to be realized in achieving any of our strategic goals, we recognize that the community will need to work together. How we work together to achieve common goals is critical.
Since its formation, the OAC has developed a partnership with the City of Ottawa; with the province of Ontario through the Ministry of Aboriginal Affairs; and a funding relationship with Aboriginal Affairs and Northern Development Canada (formerly Indian and Northern Affairs Canada) through the Urban Aboriginal Strategy. New relationships are developed through the work and priorities of the OAC.
