Violence against Indigenous women and girls in Canada: A summary of Amnesty International's concerns and call to action

    The scale and severity of violence faced by Indigenous women and girls in Canada—First Nations, Inuit and Métis—constitutes a national human rights crisis. Despite the vast scale and entrenched nature of the crisis, and the many calls for action made by Indigenous peoples’ organizations, civil society groups, provincial and territorial government leaders, Parliamentarians, and international and national human rights bodies, the Canadian government has failed to implement a comprehensive and coordinated national response in keeping with the seriousness and pervasiveness of the threats.
