Summary

This report and its recommendations draw attention to the serious and damaging consequences of Indigenous women’s experience in the federal justice and correctional systems. In particular, it is critical that Indigenous women’s needs with regards to their reintegration in their communities be met by these systems. A successful reintegration benefits not just Indigenous women themselves, but their families, their friends and their communities.
