While the missing phenomenon in Canada has been addressed by international human rights groups, these groups have primarily focused on western Canada, particularly British Columbia. To this end, this paper utilizes qualitative data, journalism and jurisprudence deceased Indigenous women in Nova Scotia. This paper ultimately argues that policing, mental health and addiction, and socioeconomic fragility all play a role in heightening Indigenous women. It then situates these findings locally within the Marshall Inquiry, nationally within internationally within the United Nations Declaration Indigenous Peoples.
