Helping families

The Victims Services Family Information Liaison Unit is a single point of contact for families of missing and murdered Indigenous women and girls.

We help families:

  • find information
  • get counselling and other supports

Our unit was started during the National Inquiry into Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women and Girls.

Blood relatives and others

The Family Information Liaison Unit helps families who have a missing or murdered loved one.

Family members could include:

  • blood relations
  • non-blood relations such as:
    • adopted family
    • those considered kin
    • street family

The type of information that we can share is subject to privacy regulations and legislation.

How we help

Families can get:

  • information about the justice system and legal processes
  • updates on criminal investigations, court proceedings and fatality inquiries involving their loved ones
  • connections to counselling, spiritual support and Elders
  • information about a loved one who is missing and murdered in another jurisdiction, through Family Information Liaison Units in other provinces and territories
