OTTAWA, May 16, 2014 /CNW/ - The findings of the RCMP's National Operational Overview on Missing and Murdered Aboriginal Women released today reinforce the urgent need for a national inquiry into the matter.

As the RCMP acknowledge in their report, violence against Aboriginal women and girls is a complex issue that extends beyond law enforcement and requires concerted action at all levels of government. 

The Canadian Human Rights Commission believes a national inquiry, in partnership with Aboriginal peoples, is needed to better understand this complexity and develop consensus on solutions. This was among the recommendations of the UN Special Rapporteur on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples.

The call for a national action plan and an independent national inquiry is supported by the Canadian Association of Statutory Human Rights Agencies, Canada's territorial and provincial premiers, as well as many Aboriginal groups.

- David Langtry, Acting Chief Commissioner, Canadian Human Rights Commission
