We need your help in solving cases of missing and murdered Indigenous women

2020 Missing and Murdered Campaign – Sisters in Spirt

The start of the campaign in October was chosen to coincide with the Sisters in Spirit Vigil held by the Native Women's Association of Canada each October 4th. On this day we honour the lives of missing and murdered Indigenous women and girls.

For a period of 10 weeks, we will highlight 10 cases. This initiative is an opportunity for communities across the country to be involved by sharing information that may generate tips for investigating officers. With the public's help we hope to bring these missing women and girls home, and seek justice and closure for families.
