Inuit women in Nunavut suffer 'unnecessary violence,' racism from RCMP, legal aid board says

Inuit in Nunavut, especially women, suffer systemic police abuse, including excessive violence and persistent racism, according to the territory's legal aid agency.

The Legal Services Board of Nunavut says it has "significant concerns" about the quality of policing and conduct of officers as reported by its Inuit clients in Nunavut's 25 communities.

The board is calling for a systemic review of policing in Nunavut.

The allegations include "repeated and systematic instances of unnecessary violence," and a lack of oversight and training specific to Inuit culture.
