A parliamentary committee says resource companies should be held “accountable” for the effect their projects have on the safety of Indigenous women and girls.
Members of Parliament on the Status of Women committee are calling on Ottawa to require companies undertaking these projects to “implement mandatory training” for their employees on gender-based violence and sexual violence.
The committee also recommends requiring companies to track reports of harassment and violence and ensuring natural resource development projects undergo a gender-based analysis.
The committee study into the relationship between resource development projects and violence against Indigenous women and girls follows the issue being raised by the National Inquiry into Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women and Girls.
