About this Member 

The Aboriginal Council of Winnipeg is a community based, membership driven, Aboriginal organization which serves as a political and advocacy voice that represents the interest of the Aboriginal community of Winnipeg. It is governed by a ten member, community elected working board.


The mission of the Aboriginal Council of Winnipeg is to be a strong political voice working towards a unified and cohesive urban Aboriginal community of Winnipeg; to be an advocate on behalf of the Aboriginal community of Winnipeg.


The ACW's vision is to support a self-sufficient, healthy, vibrant urban Aboriginal community, where families and children are ensured a good quality of life, through equal opportunity and choice so that Aboriginal people are a part of all things - a distinct presence throughout Winnipeg.

The ACW advocates in a number of areas. It recognizes the diversity of the Aboriginal community, and the need to protect this diversity in all areas of concern as expressed by the community. The new portfolio structure for key priorities will enable the ACW to better organize its actions.

  • Culture, Heritage, Language and Arts
  • Economic Development, Community Development, Education, Training and Employment, Housing and Homelessness
