Family information liaison units

Family Information Liaison Units (FILUs) help families of missing and murdered Indigenous women and girls find information about what happened to their loved ones. Staff travel throughout the NWT to meet with clients, and you can call or visit our offices in Yellowknife and Inuvik.

Your local FILU is trained to find information from the the RCMP, coroner service, courts, and other offices throughout Canada and the world. There is a FILU in every province and territory. We will help you get all of the information the law allows to be released to you about your loved ones, and we will treat you with dignity, compassion, and respect. Some of our clients may also want help from Elders, local counselors, and others including emotional support from the Native Women’s Association of the NWT and your local victim services worker.

FILU staff are not part of the National Inquiry into Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women and Girls, and will not share any information with them unless you ask us to. We are part of the Community Justice and Policing division with the Government of the Northwest Territories.

While we cannot resolve complaints, re-open investigations, or provide legal advice, we can connect you to the right resources for help.
