Fact Sheet: Violence Against Aboriginal Women in Canada

intersectionalfeminism:

  • Aboriginal women 15 years and older are 3.5 times more likely to experience violence than non-Aboriginal women.
  • Rates of spousal assault against Aboriginal women are more than three times higher than those against non-Aboriginal women.
  • Nearly one-quarter of Aboriginal women experienced some form of spousal violence in the five years preceding the 2004 GSS. 
  • 54% of Aboriginal women reported severe forms of family violence, such as being beaten, being choked, having had a gun or knife used against them, or being sexually assaulted, versus 37% of non-Aboriginal women 
  • 44% of Aboriginal women reported “fearing for their lives” when faced with severe forms of family violence, compared with 33% of non-Aboriginal women. 
  • 27% of Aboriginal women reported experiencing 10 or more assaults by the same offender, as opposed to 18% of non-Aboriginal women.
  • While the number of non-Aboriginal women reporting the most severe forms of violence declined from 43% in 1999 to 37% in 2004, the number of similar attacks against Aboriginal women remained unchanged at 54% during the same time period. 
  • Between 1997 and 2000, homicide rates of Aboriginal females were almost seven times higher than those of non-Aboriginal females.
  • Between 1991 and 2004, 171 women involved in prostitution were killed in Canada; 45% of these homicides remain unsolved 
  •  Aboriginal women between the ages of 25 and 44 with Indian status are five times more likely than other women of the same age to die as the result of violence. 
  • Homicides involving Aboriginal women are more likely to go unsolved. Only 53% of murder cases in NWAC’s Sisters In Spirit database have been solved, compared to 84% of all murder cases across the country. 
  • Six out of 10 incidents of violent crime against Aboriginal people are thought to go unreported.
