Government of PEI's Response to MMIWG and TRC Recommendations
Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women, Girls, and 2SLGBTQQIA People and the Calls for Justice
To improve readability and comprehension, the Government of Prince Edward Island has enhanced the structure of the annual Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women and Girls (MMIWG) and Truth and Reconciliation Commission (TRC) status reports into one comprehensive document. The annual status report offers a combined summary as well as detailed schedules providing specific responses to the Calls for Justice or Calls to Action in which the Government of Prince Edward Island is implicated.
The combined summary highlights significant initiatives undertaken by departments that advanced reconciliation. These initiatives include responses to a specific call and efforts taken to advance reconciliation that are not directly tied to a call. In addition, the summary includes a section highlighting initiatives that members of the MMIWG Indigenous Working Group accomplished over the year with annual funding provided by the Government of PEI. The new format now also documents initiatives completed in the calendar year referenced in the title. Prior reports' titles referenced the year in which they were published. The reports highlighting work done in past years can be accessed here.
The journey towards reconciliation requires ongoing commitment, action, and reflection. The Government of Prince Edward Island is prepared to take up the challenge and continues to record steady progress.
