Pre-inquiry meetings underway

The government of Canada has begun pre-inquiry meetings with survivors, families and loved ones so that their experiences, views and contributions can be used to inform the design of the Inquiry into Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women and Girls.

As these meetings take place, federal ministers will communicate what they are hearing by providing highlights and key themes on the What we are hearing page of the National Inquiry website.

Indigenous Affairs Minister Carolyn Bennett will be in Whitehorse on January 11th, 2016 to speak to families and community members from across the territory.
