AFN Bulletin – Missing & Murdered Indigenous Women & Girls –
AFN Pre-Inquiry Forum in Edmonton, Alberta

AFN Pre-Inquiry Forum – February 4, 2016: Edmonton Marriott River Cree Resort

In preparation for the National Inquiry on Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women and Girls (MMIWG), the Assembly of First Nations (AFN), together with the AFN national Women’s Council, is hosting a one day forum bringing together First Nation citizens, one expert/representative from each region and additional experts and guest speakers.

The Pre-Inquiry Forum is open to the public and will help inform AFN’s submission to the Government of Canada’s Pre-National Inquiry process and will include discussion on the nine questions being presented in the federal engagement process.  The Forum will provide context on previous inquires and ask delegates for input that will form the basis of a report to  the federal ministers responsible for leading the design and implementation of the national inquiry.

Registration is now open via www.afn.ca.

Out of respect for subject matter and delegates, the event is closed to media. The AFN will facilitate any media requests about the event and outcomes.
