Joan Glode

Protecting Aboriginal children is Joan Glode’s life’s work. As one of the first Aboriginal women in Canada to receive a graduate degree in social work, Joan Glode has harnessed her passions for children and the Mi’kmaw community to develop one of the most highly respected child welfare agencies in the nation. Mi’kmaw Family and Children’s Services of Nova Scotia has grown to become a multi-million dollar funded organization, giving it the ability to reach out and foster projects that target each and every one of the 13 Mi’kmaw bands in Nova Scotia.
