About Us

The Ojibway Women's Lodge provides a helping hand and ecouragement to women so they can realize their full potential, in order to rebuild their lives. Supportive staff help women indentify choices available to them, and respect a woman's right to make her own decisions.

For aboriginal people, violence against women is understood as a community issue that requires healing of the woman, the family and the community. At the Ojibway Women's Lodge we provide a community based, cultural and holistic healing approach to ending violence against all women.
