The University of Regina is hosting a four-day symposium to examine educational issues related to missing and murdered Aboriginal women and develop recommendations to reduce this societal tragedy. According to a 2013 RCMP report about 1,200 Aboriginal women in Canada have gone missing or have been murdered from 1980 to 2012. Although indigenous women make up 4.3 per cent of the Canadian population, they account for 16 per cent of female homicides and 11.3 per cent of missing women.
