Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women and Girls

Many factors contribute to the increased vulnerability of Indigenous women and girls including discrimination, poverty, and colonization. In British Columbia the strip of Highway16 between Prince George and Prince Rupert is also known as the Highway of Tears due to the high number of women and girls reported murdered and missing in this area.  Reclaiming Power and Place: The Final Report of the National Inquiry into Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women and Girls concluded that Canada's systemic neglect constitutes genocide under international law.

On June 3, 2021 the Canadian Government made  the 2021 Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women, Girls, and 2SLGBTQQIA+ People National Action Plan available to the public.
