More meetings and hearings regarding The National Inquiry into Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women and Girls are scheduled to take place this fall before the inquiry submits their final report in April of 2019. This June, the inquiry hosted an Institutional Hearing on Police Policies and Practices in Regina. Commissioner Qajaq Robinson says the hearings included hearing from witnesses, the RCMP, the Ontario Provincial Police, and Saskatchewan representatives on a variety of topics. Some of the discussions included the recruitment and training of Indigenous officers, relationships between officers and Indigenous communities and police practices in regards to various offences including domestic violence, sexual abuse and murder. Earlier this year the National Inquiry asked for a two year extension to continue their hearings and meeting before submitting their final report. Although the federal government only granted the inquiry a 6-month extension which gives them until April 30th of 2019 to submit their final report and until June 30th of next year to wrap up their operations. The inquiry held meetings and hearing in Saskatchewan within the last year both in Saskatoon and Regina. The mandate of the National Inquiry is to look into the systemic causes of all forms of violence against Indigenous women.
