Ontario pledges $100 million to help end violence against indigenous women

 


Ontario will spend $100 million over the next three years on a long-term strategy to end violence against indigenous women, most of it on support for families.

Indigenous women are three times more likely to experience violence and to be murdered than other women in Ontario, Premier Kathleen Wynne said Tuesday.

"This is devastating families and entire communities, and it's a problem our entire province needs to face," Wynne said.
