Update April 30, 2020
The Review’s important work continues despite the obvious challenges associated with COVID-19. The Review team is conducting all interviews by videoconference or teleconference. Many such interviews are taking place, involving remaining stakeholders, families and friends of those who went missing, other affected community members, civilians, police officers and government officials with relevant information, and experts on issues within the Review’s mandate from Ontario, elsewhere in Canada and elsewhere in the world. The Review continues to gather additional documents as needed.
The Review’s engagement survey, rolled out in November 2019, is now closed following a robust engagement by community members. The Review thanks all community members who participated in the survey. The Review is currently analyzing the data obtained. That data will be summarized in Judge Epstein’s Report.
The Review originally anticipated that a town hall would be held in June 2020. It has been delayed to support social distancing. The Review would like to hold the town hall in August 2020, if feasible. Please monitor this website for further information.
