Indigenous women have the right to receive culturally sensitive, traditional services to assist them and their children. Everyone should be able to live without fear of physical, emotional, psychological, sexual, verbal or elder abuse. Abuse of any kind is wrong.
Healing in a supportive community, where acceptance and understanding are evident is an important part of moving forward.
We believe public education and awareness are key elements in ending the cycle of abuse.
The Ojibway Women’s Lodge respects the diverse needs of all women including non-Indigenous, women of other cultures and women with disabilities.
The Ojibway Women’s Lodge (OWL) provides women and their dependents a safe, secure and confidential shelter stay. Services include: 24 hour crisis line, counselling, grief groups, safety planning, women’s circles, ceremonies, traditional healers, court support/accompaniment, and transportation to access services, advocacy and assistance in securing safe long term accommodations. Visit our website for more information.
“Everyone should be able to live without fear of physical, emotional, psychological, sexual, verbal or elder abuse. Abuse of any kind is wrong.

This message has been brought to you by the Ojibway Women’s Lodge. Be part of the solution to end violence against all women”.
