Canada and Australia share a dark secret: in recent decades thousands of Indigenous women have been murdered or gone missing. What can Australia learn from Canada’s attempts to address the problem?
In 2014 a landmark police report revealed that between 1980 and 2012 1,181 Indigenous women had gone missing or been murdered in Canada. Indigenous women make up nearly 16 per cent of all homicides, but only 4.3 per cent of the population. Latest reports state that they’re six times more likely to be victims of homicide.
