There are 600 known cases of missing or murdered Aboriginal women and girls in Canada. These women represent 10% of the total number of female homicides in Canada, despite the fact that Aboriginal women make up only 3% of the total female population.
Help us honour the lives of missing and murdered Aboriginal women, support their families, and recognize this Canadian crisis.
