The Congress of Aboriginal Peoples is applauding the RCMP for changing the way they handle cases of Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women and Girls.

The RCMP has introduced a new intake assessment process, along with a risk assessment for that has to be signed by a supervisor and mandatory family update schedule.

CAP is still concerned about the lack of transparency surrounding the inquiry and the lack of Indigenous partnership when developing changes, according to a press release .

“The RCMP must consult with Indigenous women and organizations like the Native Women’s Association of Canada when crafting and enforcing these changes,” says National Chief Bertrand stated in the release. He went on to say “Without their voices at the table, our Indigenous women and girls will continue to fall through the cracks.”
