The National Inquiry into Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women and Girls has concluded. Indigenous women and girls suffer higher rates of violence and homicide than non-Indigenous women and girls. The Final Report is available online at: There are many personal and systemic changes we need to make in this country. We recognize and thank the Native Women’s Association of Canada ( for their dedication to enhance, promote and foster the well-being of Indigenous women.

As an Indigenous woman representative in my worker union, I am learning about the challenges and solutions available. I am grateful for the recent learnings I have received from Colleen Hele-Cardinal, in Algonquin territory, and Hummingbirds Rising Consulting, in Musqueam, Squamish, Tsleil waututh territory. I am encouraged by my worker union’s initiation of a Reconciliation policy paper. There is much to learn.

All my relations,

Ruby Langan, Anishnaabe

UNE National Equity Representative for Aboriginal Peoples
