The National Inquiry into Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women and Girls wrote a final report in 2019 that lays out what changes need to be made in the legal system to protect Indigenous women and girls from police violence. The final report contains over 2380 families and survivors stories, as well as 231 calls for transformative justice aimed at the Canadian government and other social services. All Canadians are being called to recognize the intergenerational trauma that exists in Indigenous communities throughout the country. This report discusses Indigenous rights, the impacts of colonization, and how violence against Indigenous peoples has been an ongoing human rights issue. The report discusses the ongoing threat to violence Indigenous women face due to economic insecurities, cultural and social insecurities.
The Forensic Document Review Project discusses the families who experienced a lack of care by the police involving missing and murdered Indigenous women. Many cases were never investigated properly and families were left with no answers.
