Wanda McIvor






Bojo, Hello,

My name is Wanda McIvor, Executive Coordinator of Anishnaabe Kwewag Gamig Inc., Alderville First Nation Women’s Shelter. I am an Indigenous Ojibway woman and live in my First Nation Community of Alderville.  I am a Mother of one Son.  I have been working at Anishnaabe Kwewag Gamig Inc. since 1996 when it was built.  I lived in Port Hope most of my younger years, returning to my First Nation in 1995 when I built my first home.

The role of being Executive Coordinator of a Regional Women’s Shelter has been an awesome experience. Every day can be awarding and/or a challenge in assisting women and their children fleeing from Family Abuse. I am blessed with wonderful staff who are talented in Social Work field and are caring and non-judgemental.

(The Wild Nellies are grateful to be joined by Wanda McIvor at the Mississaugas of Scugog Island First Nation Health and Resource Centre on October 21, 2018.)
