Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and Crown-Indigenous Relations Minister Carolyn Bennett will join members of the National Family and Survivors Council (NFSC) and Indigenous organizations on Thursday to mark the release of the National Action Plan on Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women, Girls and 2SLGBTQQIA+ People (NAP).
It’s been two years since the National Inquiry into Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women and Girls (MMIWG) released its final report after gathering testimonies from families and survivors across the country.
The plan, branded as the long-promised national action plan, is something of a preliminary, but comprehensive, framework developed by a large group of partners, including the families of victims and survivors, each of Canada’s distinct Indigenous groups as well as provincial, territorial and federal governments.
An advance draft copy of the document acknowledges that it is mainly laying the foundation for more detailed and costed steps to come at a later date.
It includes seven immediate next steps that all partners have agreed to prioritize to ensure the document becomes a foundation for a more comprehensive plan to address the detailed recommendations of the inquiry.
