Inquiry Into Missing Indigenous Women and Girls Will Be Expanded To Include Men And Boys

The Canadian Association For Equality (CAFE) has announced that the National Inquiry into Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women and Girls will be expanded to include the missing and murdered indigenous men and boys. The number of missing men and boys is estimated to be two or three times larger than the number of missing women and girls.

CAFE played a leading role in building the coalition calling for the inclusion of men and boys in the inquiry and hosted an event featuring Chief Ernie Crey, from Cheam First Nation, in Ottawa on December 7, 2016 to discuss the missing and murdered indigenous people.
