Missing and murdered Indigenous women and girls

Indigenous women and girls in Canada face greater risks of violence and homicide. In 2013, the Commissioner of the RCMP called for a report on these crimes. Our report provided us, and all Canadians, with the most accurate account to date on the issue.

The health and safety of these women in our communities is a priority for the RCMP. We are working with our partners (including Indigenous organizations) to bring change.



National inquiry


The television series "Taken" profiles cases of missing and murdered Indigenous women with the goal of generating more leads in these cases. RCMP Members have participated in several episodes.
