Femicide is the intentional murder of women, girls and other gender-diverse individuals primarily by men. The gendered nature of the murder indicates that it is a femicide.
Femicide recognizes the impacts of systemic gendered power dynamics as a factor in the cause and motivation of the murder.
We honour and remember the thousands of Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women, Girls and Two-Spirit people across Canada.
Below is the list of all the Peel-Based femicides as of May 2023. You can find the complete Ontario femicide list here.
