Family information liaison unit to help families of missing and murdered indigenous women and girls obtain information from law enforcement and access to community supports and resources.
THUNDER BAY – A new provincial service to connect families of murdered and missing indigenous women and girls with information about what happened to their loved ones will hopefully bring answers and a sense of closure.
The provincial government has established a family information liaison team as part of the indigenous justice division of the Ministry of the Attorney General to work with the families to direct them to find information or access available supports and resources.
Terry Swan, the team lead, said many families are lacking answers about how their loved ones’ case was investigated and how authorities reached their conclusions.
