For years, our communities have pointed to the high number of missing and murdered Aboriginal women and girls in Canada, Highway of Tears in Northern British Columbia is a good example of the problem.
Although Aboriginal females represent only four percent of the canadian female population, they account for 16% of murders committed in Canada.
Aboriginal women and girls in Canada are especially vunerable to violence that results in them becoming a missing or murdered statistic. It is time for this to end.
The Native Women’s Association of Canada is dedicated to demanding a National Inquiry and a National Action Plan to address the underlying root causes and inequities which create the terrible burden of violence carried by Aboriginal women and girls.
