National Inquiry into Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women and Girls

Photo - RiverIn response to calls for action from Indigenous families, communities and organizations, as well as non-governmental and international organizations, the Government of Canada launched an independent National Inquiry into Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women and Girls in September 2016.

The National Inquiry into Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women and Girls, which is composed of five Commissioners from across the country, is entirely independent from federal, provincial and territorial governments and crown corporations. The Commissioners’ mandate is to examine and report on the systemic causes of all forms of violence against Indigenous women and girls in Canada by looking at patterns and underlying factors.

This website is the National Inquiry’s official online portal. All news and information issued by the Commission will be published here as it becomes available. Please consult this page regularly for updates.
