Provincial Government Committed to Plan to Address Violence Against Indigenous Women & Girls

The Provincial Government is engaged in discussions with the Federal Government, along with other provinces, territories, and Indigenous Governments and Organizations on developing a national action plan to address systemic racism and violence against Indigenous women and girls.

The Final Report of the National Inquiry into Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women and Girls was released one year ago.

The report, entitled Reclaiming Power and Place, is comprised of evidence gathered from over 2,380 family members, survivors of violence, experts and knowledge keepers. It also delivered 231 Calls for Justice. The recommendations called on governments, institutions, social service providers, industries and all Canadians to address the tragic levels of violence directed at Indigenous people of all gender and sexual minorities.
