Nearly three years after the the launch of the National Inquiry into the Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women and Girls (MMIWG), a date has been determine for the release of its findings.

The final report will be make public on June 3 in a ceremony held in Gatineau, Quebec—nearly a year behind schedule.

According to the news release from the national inquiry, the report has been complete after vital corroboration with National Family Advisory Circle, Grandmother Advisors, and the Métis, Inuit, Québec and 2SLGBTQQIA Advisory Committees. The report is to be presented to federal, provincial, and territorial governments.

The persecution of Indigenous women and girls is one of the most pressing issues in Canada. The $53.8-million inquiry was created to inspect the systemic oppression against vulnerable individuals who had been murdered or gone missing.

The inquiry was compromised due to resignations from several members directly involved with the process. Upon request, a one-year extension was granted in 2018.

The final report will encompass the accounts of 1,484 family members and survivors of violence and 83 knowledge-holders, experts, and officials from across the country. The event will also include ceremonies from First Nations, Métis and Inuit traditions.

In the closing ceremony, commissioners will discuss the report’s key findings and will take questions from the media. The event will be live-streamed on the national inquiry’s website.

The report was initially schedule to be presented on April 30, but has been postponed till June 3 so it can be translated in several Indigenous languages, in addition to English and French.
