Thunder Bay, ON – The Ontario Native Women’s Association (ONWA) has been invested in the ongoing development and implementation of the Ontario’s Pathways to Safety Strategy. Today, ONWA is pleased to share progress with respect to addressing Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women and Girls (MMIWG) in this report.
Partnership with the Indigenous Women’s Advisory Council and Indigenous partners, alongside engagement with Indigenous women, survivors and families was paramount to the development of Ontario’s Strategy and has been integral to its implementation. Although we acknowledge that significant work still needs to be done as it relates to addressing the tragedy of MMIWG, this progress report is indicative of the collective ongoing efforts taking place to address the root causes.
