ANISHINABEK NATION HEAD OFFICE (August 2, 2022) – Koganaawsawin, the central coordinating body of the Anishinabek Child, Youth, and Family Well-Being System, has received direction from Anishinabek First Nations to move forward with the Anishinabek Nation Child Well-Being Working Group’s recommendation to incorporate Koganaawsawin as a not-for-profit corporation.
“We are encouraged to see this exciting progress being made in the area of child, youth, and family well-being,” states Anishinabek Nation Grand Council Chief Reg Niganobe. “The Anishinabek Nation has been working tirelessly with Anishinabek communities to advance our own child well-being system – a system that will help our children, youth, and families to thrive.”
Through a seven-year community consultation process, the Anishinabek Nation drafted the Anishinabek Nation Child Well-Being Law under First Nations’ inherent jurisdiction over child and youth well-being, and family unity. In 2015, the Anishinabek Nation Chiefs-in-Assembly approved the Law in-principle and directed the Anishinabek Nation to present the Law to its 39 member First Nations for their individual review and approval.
