MONTREAL – The first annual commemorative march for missing and murdered indigenous women will unite Montrealers with hundreds of others marching in cities across Canada.

The Montreal march is scheduled to begin at 2 p.m. at Parc Émilien-Gamelin located at the corner of Berri and St. Hubert Sts.

Marchers will make their way to Parc des Amériques at the corner of Rachel St. and St. Laurent Blvd.and where a somber commemoration will take place.

A study by the Native Women’s Association of Canada found that more than 520 indigenous women have disappeared or been killed over the past four decades.

Since 1991, the annual march drawing attention to the plight of indigenous women, has been held in Vancouver, Edmonton, Winnipeg, London, Sudbury and Toronto.
