Deadline for Standing Extended to April 18

The National Inquiry into Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women and Girls has extended the deadline to April 18 from April 10 for interested parties to apply for standing.

The application forms and instructions are available on the National Inquiry’s website, at www.mmiwg-ffada.ca under “Legal Notices and Documents.” There is also an opportunity for those parties seeking standing to apply for funding.

Applicants will receive written decisions from the Commissioners on whether their applications for standing and funding have been accepted and, if so, on what terms. Applications can be submitted by:

email: legal@mmiwg-ffada.ca
fax: 1-604-775-5009
mail: National Inquiry into Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women and Girls, Head Office, P.O. Box 500, Station A, Vancouver, British Columbia V6C 2N3.

For more information about standing, interested parties may call 1-604-775-9702.

Importantly, family members of missing or murdered Indigenous women, girls, two-spirited individuals, and survivors of violence who wish to share their experiences with the Commissioners do not have to apply for standing. There is no need for these individuals to apply for funding under the standing process, as their reasonable expenses for attending to give their testimony will be paid by the National Inquiry, in accordance with the guidelines established.

Families and survivors who would like to share their stories with the National Inquiry should send an email to profile@mmiwg-ffada.ca or call toll free 1-844-348-4119.

For more information, please contact:

Christa Big Canoe, Commission Counsel or Susan Vella, Lead Counsel via Sue Montgomery 514-240-0368 or s.montgomery@mmiwg-ffada.ca
