2019 - National Inquiry into Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women and Girls

The mandate of the National Inquiry was to examine the underlying social, economic, cultural, institutional, and historical causes that contribute to the ongoing violence and particular vulnerabilities of Indigenous women and girls in Canada and to report on the systemic causes of all forms of violence against Indigenous women and girls (including sexual violence, sexual assault, child abuse, domestic violence, bullying and harassment, suicide, and self-harm).
