The Saskatchewan Advocate for Children and Youth was called as an Expert Witness to testify before the National Inquiry into Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women and Girls. Corey O’Soup spoke as the Advocate, an educator, and as an Indigenous person. He told the commission that the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child is the framework he uses to conduct his work. O’Soup spoke about his recent report on youth suicide in northern Saskatchewan. The commission highlighted the importance of education to address youth vulnerability. O’Soup said, “I challenge our education system to change the way they define success as it is not always the same way we define it.” The Advocate’s 2017 Annual Report stated that there was a 43.2 per cent graduation rate amongst Indigenous youth compare to an 85.4 per cent rate for non-indigenous youth.
