The inquiry into missing and murdered indigenous women and girls is failing to keep families informed says a national aboriginal women’s group.
Francyne Joe is the interim president of the Native Women’s Association of Canada, and says the inquiry should be more transparent.
The group released an inquiry report card where most of the of the grades given by NWAC are in the “insufficient information” category.
Despite her concerns, Joe remains hopeful that the inquiry will adopt some of her group’s recommendations.
She adds family members can contact NWAC to be added to an information list the group is compiling.
The National Inquiry Into Murdered and Missing Indigenous Women and Girls was launched just over a year ago.
