The Ontario Native Women's Association (ONWA) is a not for profit organization that was established in 1971 to empower and support Aboriginal women and their families throughout the province of Ontario.

ONWA's guiding principle is that all Aboriginal ancestry will be treated with dignity, respect and equality; benefits and services will be extended to all, no matter where one lives and regardless of Tribal heritage.

ONWA’s VISION is to be a unified voice for equity, equality and justice for Aboriginal women through cultural restoration within and across Nations.
