Yukon Advisory Committee to support National Inquiry MMIWG Yukon

Yukon advisory committee to support work of National Inquiry into Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women and Girls in Yukon

The committee is co-chaired by Minister responsible for the Woman’s Directorate Jeanie Dendys, Kwanlin Dün Chief Doris Bill, and Yukon Aboriginal Women’s Council president Doris Anderson.


The advisory committee will continue the work of bringing together governments, agencies, communities and families to share information and guide our common work during the inquiry. The goal is to support the work of the commission of the national inquiry while ensuring this work meaningfully integrates the voices of Yukon families of missing and murdered Indigenous women and girls.

“We come here to honour the lives of the lost love ones and family members that remember them. I commend the Government of Canada for launching this inquiry to ‘find the truth, honour the truth, and give life to the truth as a path to healing.” shared Chief Doris Bill.

 

In order to ensure the voices of Yukon women and families are included in this important inquiry, the advisory committee urges those who want to participate to contact the national inquiry though their website, by emailing .(JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address) or by calling their toll-free number 1-844-348-4119.
