Canada's Missing Women

Canada's First Nations women are disappearing

Canada's Missing Women Canada's rural communities harbour a dark epidemic - the loss of thousands of indigenous women. This 2017 report reveals entrenched racial prejudice dividing communities amidst the failure of state police.
"We're looking for bones now," says Bernice Catcheway, a First Nations mother whose daughter Jennifer disappeared 9 years ago. "People don't realise what we go through. People don't care," says her husband Wilfred. Official reports record almost 1200 murdered or missing indigenous women since 1980. The Native Women's Association of Canada claim the number is closer to 4000. Produced by Dateline, SBS Australia.
