National Inquiry into Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women and Girls (MMIWG)
Privy Council of Canada
Date of Event:
July 2017 - June 2019
Type of Event:
NmTC was engaged by the Privy Council of Canada to conduct a national inquiry into missing and murdered Indigenous Women and Girls. This project required tact, diplomacy in dealing with an issue with extreme sensitivities. MMIWG was a benchmark project in terms of the sheer scale and scope of activities for which NmTC was tasked.
The scope of work was to secure accommodation, meeting space, hospitality, travel coordination, other logistical services, and provide audio visual equipment and services for the Family Hearings of the National Inquiry into Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women and Girls.
Each hearing was expected to be conducted over 3 days, reserving the day before and the day after for traveling and set-ups. The hearings were recorded and live streamed on the National Inquiry website.
More than 70 hearings and meetings were held in small communities and large urban centres throughout all provinces and territories in Canada (except Prince Edward Island). Throughout the 2½ years the size of the events ranged from small sessions to the closing event in June 2019, with 3,000 participants.
The project issued its final report, “Reclaiming Power and Place: The Final Report of the National Inquiry into Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women and Girls,” on time and within budget.
