Social Enterprise

Empowering Women to Walk in Balance


It is an Indigenous women-led cultural social enterprise currently under development that will open in the Thunder Woman Healing Lodge. The retail gift shop and art gallery will feature Indigenous artists and merchandise both online for a global audience and in a physical storefront in our east Toronto neighborhood. Annually, up to 24 Indigenous women will achieve autonomy and skills through job readiness, employment and entrepreneurship training to break the cycle of incarceration.
