Prominent organizations seek commitment that inquiry on missing and murdered Indigenous women and girls will be truly national and comprehensive


In an open letter sent this week, five national organizations that have been deeply involved in efforts to expose and address violence against Indigenous women and girls call on the federal government to ensure that the forthcoming national inquiry can:

  • Focus on the extreme violence faced by Indigenous women and girls and bring it to an end by setting out a clear plan of action for all levels of government
  • Expose the systemic factors contributing to and perpetuating this violence
  • Ensure the full and effective participation of affected families and communities
  • Address the needs of Indigenous women and girls, and provide families the answers they need, across all jurisdictions in Canada
