Truth Gathering Process
The stories of families and survivors are the heart and soul of the National Inquiry into Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women and Girls.
The National Inquiry has three parts to its Truth Gathering Process.
Part I focused on gathering information from families and survivors through Community Hearings and Statement Gathering events. While registration for Part I events closed on April 20, 2018, through this process the National Inquiry heard 1273 testimonies from families and survivors and another 500 families and survivors have registered to share their testimonies with the National Inquiry over the coming months.
Part II Institutional Hearings and Part III Knowledge Keeper and Expert Hearings are continuing through June 2018 to gather the testimony of Knowledge Keepers and experts such as government officials, academics, legal experts and community leaders.
