Joint Message on the 3rd Anniversary of the Release of the MMIWG National Inquiry Final Report

On the third anniversary of the release of the final report from the National Inquiry into Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women and Girls, and the first anniversary of the release of the National Action Plan, we are pleased to reaffirm our ongoing commitment to ending violence against Indigenous women, girls, and 2SLGBTQQIA+ people.

Together, the Mi’kmaq and the Province of Nova Scotia have been working to respond to the Calls for Justice. Our holistic approach that has guided our work to date continues to ensure that all voices are heard and included as we work to build our path forward.

Important work has been advanced this past year to improve areas such as health and wellness, culture and language, child welfare, gender-based violence, and economic security. Through this work, we are helping build stronger families and communities, improving the safety of Indigenous women, girls and 2SLGBTQQIA+ people wherever they live. For an update on our work together, please click here.

We know there is much more work to be done. With families and survivors at the centre of our work, we will continue to take steps forward in partnership to address the priorities identified by the Mi’kmaq, in the Final Report, and in the National Action Plan. Together we will build a better future.

Minister Karla MacFarlane
