The RCMP’s systemic negligence has gone on long enough.

We have proposed, and been certified for, a $600-million class action lawsuit. 

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.

So far the government has not taken any action to right these wrongs.

If you are an Indigenous person with a missing or murdered loved one, stand up and be counted. Add your name to our class action list today.

 

FAQ

How can I join the MMIW class action?

We will keep you updated on the status of the case.

Should our class action be successful we will send you your portion of the funds from this case. A successful class action will either end in the RCMP agreeing to a settlement or as a result of a litigation victory in court.

 

How do class action lawsuits work?

In a class action lawsuit, people who share similar grievances against the same major entity band together to bring all of their claims at once. This sends a clear message and often creates much larger punitive amounts, as well as the ability to ask the judge to order these organizations to make a change.

This suit may be a way forward towards encouraging RCMP to do better for our mothers, sisters, and daughters in the future by putting an end to discriminatory policing practices.
