“The complex interplay of factors – many of which are part of the legacy of residential schools – needs to be examined, as does the lack of success of police forces in solving these crimes against Aboriginal women”
Truth and Reconciliation Commission (TRC), Final Report, December 2015

- strengthen solidarity and support for victims and their families
- be informed about the inquiry
- learn about issues and concerns that have been raised by family members, federal, provincial and grassroots Indigenous groups
- understand the history of the inquiry through a timeline
- reach out to other groups working on this issues
- find resources for advocacy and action
- be inspired by the stories and testimonies of the courageous people involved in this work.
