A Conversation with the Commissioners of the National Inquiry, Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women and Girls

June 14, 2019

UNIVERSITY OF SASKATCHEWAN

On June 14, join us and the National Inquiry on Murdered and Missing Indigenous Women and Girls' Chief Commissioner Marion Buller and Commissioner Brian Eyolfson, as they share their insights and perspectives found in the report presented to the federal, provincial and territorial governments on June 3, 2019.

In September 2016, the Government of Canada launched the independent National Inquiry into Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women and Girls, with a mandate to gather evidence, examine and report on the systemic causes of all forms of violence against Indigenous women and girls and 2SLGBTQQIA individuals in Canada. 

Over the next two and a half years, the unprecedented investigation went on to hear from 1,484 family members and survivors of violence and 83 knowledge-keepers, experts and officials who provided testimony at 24 public hearings and statement gathering events across the country. 

The National Inquiry will present its final report to the federal, provincial and territorial governments on June 3, 2019. We are honoured to welcome Chief Commissioner Marion Buller and Commissioner Brian Eyolfson to the University of Saskatchewan to share the insights and perspectives found in the report. 

This event is hosted by the Johnson Shoyama Graduate School of Public Policy, the University of Saskatchewan Office of the Vice-Provost Indigenous Engagement, and the Department of Indigenous Studies in the College of Arts and Science, and in partnership with the National Inquiry for Murdered and Missing Indigenous Women and Girls.
