The Congress of Aboriginal Peoples’ National Grassroots Engagement Tour in Winnipeg
Indian and Metis Friendship Centre
Thursday, March 13 6:30 – 9:30PM
As National Chief of the Congress of Aboriginal Peoples, I would like to extend a personal invitation to you and those in your organization to Winnipeg, Manitoba, as part of a National Grassroots Engagement Tour. Accompanying National Chief Lavallée will be National Vice-Chief, Ron Swain.
This event will take place at the Indian & Metis Friendship Centre of Winnipeg – 45 Robinson St, on Thursday, March 13, 2014 between the hours of 6:30 p.m. and 9:30 p.m. A light snack will be provided to participants.
The goal of the cross-country tour is to have an open, meaningful and productive conversation about off-reserve Aboriginal issues that matter to you the most.
Winnipeg is one of a number of stops that are being held in regions throughout the country. It will present an opportunity to familiarize yourself with the Congress’ mandate, purpose, policy initiatives and current programs and services. Everyone is welcome!
With this in mind, we really want to hear and find out what’s important to you in your lives, and what subjects you feel that the Congress should address to ensure that all off-reserve Aboriginal Peoples enjoy a prosperous and healthy quality of life. By working together and learning more about one another, we all win.
If you require further information, please contact us by phone or by email at email@example.com or by calling 1-888-997-9927 (toll-free).
I look forward to meeting with you and listening to your thoughts and ideas.

Since 1971, the Congress of Aboriginal Peoples (formerly known as the Native Council of Canada) has been the National Representative Organization and the National Voice for the constituency and their Affiliate Organizations making up the Congress’ family of advocates for the off-reserve, non-Status, and Status Indians, Métis and Southern Inuit living in urban, rural remote and isolated areas throughout Canada. Today, over 75% of Aboriginal Peoples live off-reserve.
