Every May 5th, red dresses and clothing are worn or hung outside homes and workplaces across the country. The red dress acts as a symbol of hope. Its purpose is to raise awareness for Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women (MMIW).

To commemorate Red Dress Day, Qualicum First Nations (QFN) Chief, Michael Recalma met with Oceanside RCMP Acting Detachment Commander, Sergeant Stephen Rose to reflect upon the tragedies of the past and what can be learned. Most importantly, they wanted to look forward and strategize to ensure a safe and inclusive community for Indigenous women.
