Description:

The paper relates that during the constitutional reform discussions that led up to the Charlottetown Accord, various government-funded aboriginal organizations were invited to participate in the debate. The paper notes that unfortunately, the Native Women's Association of Canada (NWAC) was not invited to participate in this debate. The paper discusses how in the view of the aforementioned group, its exclusion from direct funding and from direct participation in the constitutional discussions of the day was a threat to the equality of aboriginal women. The paper notes that in particular, NWAC was troubled at the prospect that the proposals being bandied about with regards to constitutional amendments might very well result in the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms not applying to aboriginal self-government. The paper discusses how NWAC went to court to prevent any further provisioning of monies to other aboriginal organizations until NWAC was provided with equal funding as well.
