Alberta Indigenous Women Guardian Angels Project

Esquao, the Institute for the Advancement of Aboriginal Women, is honoured to partner with the Government of Canada on the Alberta Indigenous Women Guardian Angels Project.

The project is part of our efforts to implement and evaluate a mechanism to hear the voices of Indigenous women in over 20 Alberta communities, and build local solutions to address the root causes of gender-based violence.

Through established communications channels with established women’s groups across Alberta, Esquao will engage in conversations about shared concerns and challenges. Working together, we will identify positive ways forward for Alberta women post-pandemic.

Working closely with Indigenous Women Guardian Angels—often leaders in the community—Esquao will work with these women and women’s groups to identify priorities and build connections to services that advance the individual capacity of Indigenous women, their families, and communities by implementing actions on employment and training, poverty reduction, violence prevention, and mental health and wellness.
