The Anishinabek Nation incorporated the Union of Ontario Indians (UOI) as its secretariat in 1949. The UOI is a political advocate for 40 member First Nations across Ontario. The Union of Ontario Indians is the oldest political organization in Ontario and can trace its roots back to the Confederacy of Three Fires, which existed long before European contact.
Nations affiliated with the UOI who receive NNADAP dollars from Health Health Canada have a representative chosen from one of these Nations. This Representative then sits on the Ontario Regional Addictions Partnership Committee (ORAPC). The ORAPC advocates on behalf of NNADAP Workers for those Nations.
The ORAPC Committee Member(s) for the Union of Ontario North is Rolanda Manitowbi. Currently, the Representative for the UOI South is yet to be determined!
