Members of the National Inquiry into Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women and Girls are in Yukon doing preliminary work ahead of the start of the inquiry.
Staff from the health, research, community relations, and legal teams are in the territory this week, reaching out to those who want to participate in the inquiry, which starts in Whitehorse.
The inquiry says these community visits will help with planning and preparation for ‘Community Hearings of the Truth Gathering Process’ beginning May 29th.
After postponing regional meetings in Edmonton, Thunder Bay and Northern B.C. last month, Chief Commissioner Marion Buller announced the inquiry would take a step back and reassess how to proceed after hearing from families in Whitehorse.
