The Bora Laskin Law Library, the International Human Rights Program at the University of Toronto Faculty of Law, and the Canadian Feminist Alliance for International Action (FAFIA) are pleased to announce a new collection of documents on the Bora Laskin Law Library’s web site that focus on the crisis of missing and murdered Indigenous women and girls in Canada.

This collection  was developed by the Canadian Feminist Alliance for International Action (FAFIA)  and has been subsequently expanded on by the Bora Laskin Law Library.  It includes links to reports, press statements, and various other documents. Please visit the collection at https://library.law.utoronto.ca/node/2751

The collection is set out in five parts:

I. Civil Society Reports
II. Government Reports
III. Secondary Resources
