About CWEIA

Our Story

In 2008, contact was finally made with the Ministry of Culture, Communications and Status of Women of Quebec (MCCCFQ) at the Quebec Government to sign an agreement to provide us with funding to build on our capacity as well as develop programs and services through five objectives that was developed with the CWEIA in collaboration with the MCCCFQ program officer.

In the early 90's, at the Annual General Meeting of Grand Council of the Crees of Eeyou Istchee and the Cree Regional Authority which was held in Whapmagoostui; the Regional Director who advocated for Women’s rights, Mrs. Bella Mianscum, requested a resolution to be passed to recognize the Cree Women in Eeyou Istchee which received unanimous support from all Chiefs in assembly. After this, no further action was taken as to requiring funding or other support needed to bring forth the Cree Women. So they continued to associate through the Quebec Native Women with the little funding allocated to each Quebec nation/tribe. There was no continuation of the business affairs regarding Cree Women except at the Annual Gatherings and usually these gatherings were held around the end of summer and at this time most women were out on their goose/moose breaks.
