Report on the Pre-Inquiry Consultation Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women and Girls
The issue of missing and murdered Indigenous women has generated national and international attention and concern over a number of years, and now the federal government will be holding a National Inquiry on the matter. Pauktuutit, with the support of Minister Carolyn Bennett and officials at Indigenous and Northern Affairs Canada, held a four day pre-consultation meeting in Ottawa in February 2016 that brought together Inuit family members, representatives of a number of regional and national Inuit organizations, subject matter experts and others. This unprecedented meeting resulted in a comprehensive report with many recommendations on the mandate, composition, scope and process of the national inquiry. Participants also gave a name to the work to come: Nipimit Nanisiniq Finding Voice.
