  • Joseph Martino, Director , Special Investigations Unit
  • Christa Big Canoe, Executive Director, Aboriginal Legal Services
  • Fareeda Adam, Staff Lawyer, Black Legal Action Centre

In 2019, the Government of Ontario changed the police oversight system in this province. Among the changes is to create a separate legislation for the Special Investigations Unit (SIU), an independent body that conducts criminal investigations into circumstances involving police and civilians that have resulted in serious injury, death or allegations of sexual assault. This new SIU Act will soon come into force. Find out more about the new legislation and what it means for Indigenous, Black, and other racialized communities.
