Support is available for family members of missing or murdered Indigenous women or girls

Are you searching for information on your loved one’s case? The Family Information Liaison Unit (FILU) can help you find out information and provide support.

FILU can help by

… gathering information on your behalf

  • We can request official information and records from the police, coroner, court, government agencies and others from across Canada.
    • We will try to explain why certain records may be unavailable.

… supporting you at meetings

  • We can arrange meetings with agencies and be there for you.

… walking with you through the legal process

  • If your loved one’s case is still under investigation or in the court system, we can help you navigate the process.
    • We can attend court with you and make sure you understand what is going on.
    • We can provide regular updates from courts, police and corrections.

… providing emotional support

  • We honour your loved one and know this is a very difficult time.
    • We can provide emotional support or we can refer you to others – like counselors and Elders – to help you on your healing journey.
