"This five-year Action Plan to Address Family Violence and Violent Crimes Against Aboriginal Women and Girls brings together actions the Government of Canada will take under three pillars:
preventing violence by supporting community level solutions;
supporting Aboriginal victims with appropriate services;
protecting Aboriginal women and girls by investing in shelters and continuing to improve Canada’s law enforcement and justice systems.
This Action Plan is the Government of Canada’s response to the recommendations of the Special Committee on Violence Against Indigenous Women, and reflects that this is a serious issue that requires coordinated and multi-faceted action."--Executive Summary.
