National Inquiry on Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women and Girls - Update and Plans

OTTAWA, Feb. 6, 2017 /CNW/ - The National Inquiry into Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women and Girls has been in full gear for the past five months setting up an inquiry into one of the most important issues in Canadian history.

We acknowledge the frustration among families and survivors who are anxious to tell their stories in the hopes that their experience will not be repeated. We are dedicated to making a positive change in the lives of our Indigenous sisters and we commit to improving communications with them.

With our infrastructure now in place and a main staff on board, comprising of 35 people, of which 22 are Indigenous, the stage is now set to move forward.

We invite you to a press conference where all five Commissioners will be present and an overview will be given about our next steps and how people can participate.

Poliquin Green Room, 111 Sussex Drive, Ottawa Ont.
