Enter our Mother's Day Contest


​Tell us about a special First Nati​ons mother / mother figure in your life and you could win a gift card to treat her to a Mother’s Day lunch! 


​Mother’s Day is coming soon (Sunday, May 14), and this year, you’ve got a chance to win a Mother’s Day gift for the First Nations mother or mother figure in your life!

Send an email to CMO.office@fnha.ca with “Mother’s Day Contest” in the subject line by Sunday, May 7 telling us about a special First Nations mother figure living in British Columbia (BC) you want to honour and celebrate. They can be your own mother, grandmother, sister, auntie, or someone else you know and admire. Attach a photo of her if you can! 

The winner will receive a $100 VISA gift card to treat your mother or mother figure to a meal on or around Mother’s Day, and the runners-up (up to four people) will receive $50 each.

We look forward to hearing from you – and don’t worry about your writing, as we can work with you to polish your entry (before it is published on our social media) if you like. The important part is expressing your feelings about your mother or mother figure – and just speaking from the heart!

At the First Nations Health Authority (FNHA), we honour and respect First Nations women as life givers, knowledge keepers, and caretakers of life. 

We highlight the importance of women in First Nations cultures in our 2021 report Sacred and Strong – Upholding Our Matriarchal Roles​

First Nations matriarchs are keepers of culture and language, protectors of our lands and resources, experienced harvesters and hunters. This is why we want to honour the First Nations mothers or mother figures in BC and celebrate them for raising their families, being role models and leaders, and keeping communities strong and resilient. 

This Mother’s Day, let’s celebrate the amazing First Nations women in our lives! We look forward to hearing from you!
