What we do

for Nations

Empowered Nations Thrive.

Warshield empowers community leadership with capacity-training and ongoing mentorship, ensuring communities have a strong, unified voice asserting their rights and interests, and the best tools to build strategies that work for them.
First Nations leadership is complex. Each portfolio area has its own
particular network and challenges. The Warshield team has knowledge
and experience that can help leadership navigate these areas in
order to deliver results and advance each Nation’s unique goals.
