Follow up to the National Inquiry into Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women and Girls

On August 9, 2016, in the wake of the creation of the federal National Inquiry into Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women and Girls This hyperlink will open in a new window., the Québec government assigned to the commission of inquiry a mandate to investigate and report on the causes of the forms of violence against Indigenous women and girls in Québec and formulate recommendations on concrete, sustainable actions to be implemented to prevent such violence. The mandate enabled the committee members of the National Inquiry to conduct their deliberations in fields that fall within Québec's jurisdiction.

The final report, submitted on June 2, 2019, comprised 231 Calls for Justice applicable throughout Canada, while the report specific to the situation in Québec included 21 that focused, by way of an example, on employee training and cultural safety, domestic and sexual violence, justice, police processes, and security.

In a perspective of transparency, the Secrétariat aux relations avec les Premières Nations et les Inuit , in collaboration with the government departments and bodies concerned, has produced a follow-up table that reports on the state of advancement of the implementation of the Calls for Justice (PDF 2.86 Mb), which will be updated periodically in the coming years.
