The Government of Canada launched an online survey today to help gather input for the upcoming national inquiry into missing and murdered aboriginal women.
The survey will supplement several engagement sessions being held across the country, including one in Prince George on January 15th.
“We want to hear from Canadians on this issue of national significance. I encourage everyone to read the discussion guide and participate in this process via the online survey.” Carolyn Bennett, Minister of Indigenous said in a statement “We need to hear from all Canadians – especially survivors, families and loved ones, Indigenous organizations, and provinces and territories – to help us identify the best process for this inquiry.”
The web survey and engagement sessions across the country was a part of ‘phase one’, of the national public inquiry announced December 8th.
Information gathered in the first part of 2016 will then go on to help build the framework for the larger full public inquiry.
