Sterilization of Indigenous women in Canada without Consent
Amnesty International is advocating alongside partners including the Native Women's Association of Canada and Action Canada for Sexual Health and Rights to end forced and coerced sterilization of Indigenous women in Canada. We are calling on government to do three things: investigate it, stop it, and ensure justice for survivors.
Where to disclose
If you are an Indigenous woman in Canada and you have been sterilized without providing free, full, and informed consent and want to confidentially disclose what happened to you, you may wish to contact Maurice Law, the Indigenous law firm leading the proposed class action law suit in Saskatchewan representing Indigenous women who were sterilized without consent. See Maurice Law website for details.
