Class Action on Behalf of the Families of Murdered and Missing Indigenous Women

The impacts of colonialism on policing in Canada cannot be overstated. The lack of care, attention, and effort the RCMP has put into finding solving crimes on behalf of Indigenous women is unacceptable. If you are an Indigenous person with a missing or murdered loved one, this proposed class action litigation is seeking compensation options and an apology for the MMIW tragedies.

 

How do class action lawsuits work?

A class action gathers a large group of plaintiffs together to resolve their complaints in a single court case. It is the appropriate type of court case when it’s not necessarily practical for individual class members to bring an individual personal injury case to court.

You pay no legal fees unless these class action lawsuits are successful. Our law firm take all the risk of paying the expenses and costs of prosecuting these class actions. Our lawyers will be paid a contingency percentage (upon approval from the Canadian Courts) if this class action reaches a successful conclusion and provides individual compensation options.
