About this position

Request for Proposal for the Congress of Aboriginal Peoples MMIWG Commemoration Project

Title: Web and Graphic Designer

Closing Date for Submission: October 30, 2020



The Congress of Aboriginal Peoples (CAP) is one of five National Indigenous Representative Organizations recognized by the Government of Canada. Founded in 1971 as the Native Council of Canada (NCC), the organization was originally established to represent the interests of Métis and non-status Indians. Reorganized and renamed in 1993, CAP has extended its constituency to include all off-reserve status and non-status Indians, Métis and Southern Inuit Indigenous Peoples, and serves as the national voice for its provincial and territorial affiliate organizations. 

Program Background

This project has been funded under the Department of Women and Gender Equality’s (WAGE) Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women and Girls (MMIWG) Commemoration Fund. The objectives of this fund are to honour the lives and legacies of missing and murdered Indigenous women, girls and 2SLGBTQQIA individuals, and increase awareness about missing and murdered Indigenous women, girls and 2SLGBTQQIA individuals.

Project Description and Scope

CAP’s MMIWG Commemoration Project aims to raise awareness among non-Indigenous communities about MMIWG and highlight systemic processes that contribute to this ongoing crisis. Non-Indigenous populations need to be mobilized to act as allies. CAP has conducted desktop research to expose systemic, societal and institutional factors that foster MMIWG. Based on the desktop research, six research papers have been written that provide historical context and connect systemic factors to MMIWG. From these research papers, five videos are in the process of being created that depict each of these systemic factors. The five systemic factors that this project focuses on are: child welfare, policing, justice, sexual exploitation/trafficking and media. A website will be developed that will host the videos, research papers and additional resources. Both the website and videos will be disseminated through various sources (such as online media outlets and posters) and target non-Indigenous populations.
