Sterilization of Indigenous women in Canada without Consent
Amnesty International is advocating alongside partner organizations to end forced and coerced sterilization of Indigenous peoples in Canada. We are calling on government to do three things: investigate it, stop it, and ensure justice for survivors.
Where to disclose
If you are an Indigenous woman in Canada and you have been sterilized without your free, full, and informed consent, and you want to confidentially disclose what happened to you, you may wish to contact Semaganis Worm Lombard Law, the Indigenous law firm leading the proposed class action law suit representing Indigenous women who were sterilized without their consent. See Semaganis Worme Lombard Law website for details. You can fill out their online form, and an Indigenous woman lawyer will contact you by phone. Health supports are available from Hope for Wellness Helpline.
