OTTAWA, ON., November 25, 2019 – Les Femmes Michif Otipemisiwak (LFMO) President Melanie Omeniho is proud to announce LFMO’s own Métis-specific Final Report of the National Inquiry into Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women and Girls (MMIWG). LFMO has been open about its concerns regarding the National Inquiry’s exclusion of Métis women, girls, LGBTQ2S+ people and survivors.

“Since the National Inquiry did not include Métis, we have done the work ourselves. We have made our own recommendations to the Minister based on work done by the Métis Nation, for our Métis women, families and communities,” President Omeniho stated.
