Help for Families of Missing or Murdered Persons

Hundreds of people go missing in Saskatchewan every year; however, most are found safe and returned to their loved ones.  People can go missing for a number of reasons: accident, health issues, voluntary leaving, abduction or foul play. When someone goes missing, family, friends and the community become concerned.

Families and friends of missing persons do not have to face this difficult situation alone.

The Provincial Partnership Committee on Missing Persons (PPCMP) was formed in 2005 to support families of long term missing persons (persons missing longer than six months). The PPCMP, made up of community, government, police, and Aboriginal organization representatives, works collaboratively to prevent people from going missing and to improve responses and supports when someone goes missing.  The PPCMP engages with families of missing persons to better understand their needs. Read the PPCMP newsletter.

The Family Information Liaison Unit (FILU) was established specifically to help families of missing and murdered Indigenous women and girls. Working with other agencies, government and non-government organizations, the FILU acts as a broker connecting families with agencies who can provide information about their loved ones. 

Every May, the Government of Saskatchewan declares a Missing Persons Week in the province to raise awareness about why people go missing and what measures can be taken to prevent or respond to such situations.

5. Saskatchewan Association of Chiefs of Police (SACP)

The Saskatchewan Association of Chiefs of Police (SACP) is the voice of policing in Saskatchewan. Because police agencies in Saskatchewan have jurisdiction over missing person cases, the SACP has a large role in the Provincial Partnership Committee on Missing Persons.  Their website contains information on missing persons as well as materials profiled during the annual Missing Persons Week.
