Presentation Transcript
  • According to Indigenous activists, approximately 60% of 3000 women that have gone missing or been murdered in Canada since 1980, are Native, with approximately 500 cases outstanding in BC alone. The official number of cases according to NWAC is 583. The discrepancy between these numbers can be attributed to a lack of funding for widespread research, most recently manifest in the government’s cutting of funds to NWAC’s Sisters in Spirit campaign.

  • According to Amnesty International (2004) “there are over 500 missing Aboriginal women in Canada and this is a primary illustration of how Aboriginal women are devalued in Canadian society. It is an indication that the legal system does not regard Aboriginal women lives as important as their cohorts. In Saskatchewan, a shameful number of 24 Aboriginal women and children are missing this is paramount as it suggests in Saskatchewan Aboriginal women are seen as dispensable.
