At least 1,017 Indigenous women and girls were murdered between 1980 and 2012. What are the root causes of this violence? How can the police and government effectively respond to this crisis? Those are questions Canada must address when they take action to prevent the murder of Indigenous women and girls.
A National Action Plan, in cooperation with Indigenous communities, is essential for preventing violence against women and supporting victims of violence . This plan needs to include measures to ensure effective and unbiased police responses as well as tackle discrimination and inequalities that lead to such high rates of violence.
