Indigenous Women in Community Leadership Program


Program Manager




The Indigenous Women in Community Leadership program helps you, as a First Nations, Métis or Inuit woman, to create change in your community. youtube
The program has three components over the course of four months:
 1) A three-week intensive course in May at the Coady International Institute, which includes training in Project Management, Aboriginal History, Leadership, Asset-Based Community Development, Positive Interpersonal Engagement Strategies and Proposal Writing. During the three-week course, participants also get to meet with their mentor for about one week. We work with participants to find suitable mentors.
 2) A three-month work placement (June to August) which is identified and negotiated by the participant with the approval of the IWCL program manager.  The community placement will help them practice the tools and skills learned in the three-week course. Participants are guided and supported by their mentor during the community placement.
 3) One week and a half in August at the Coady, which includes a two day course in Public Speaking and an opportunity for participants to reflect on their placement and the overall program; to present their community project placement results, and to graduate.  Mentors also return for the presentations and graduation ceremony.
Deadline to apply Janurary 18th.
