Family Information Liaison Unit (FILU)

FILU - a resource for families of missing or murdered Indigenous women and girls


The Family Information Liaison Unit (FILU) can help you find out information and provide support.

FILU can help by

… gathering information on your behalf

  • We can request official information and records from the police, coroner, court, government agencies and others from across Canada.
  • We will try to explain why certain records may be unavailable.

… supporting you at meetings

  • We can arrange meetings with agencies and be there for you.

… walking with you through the legal process

  • If your loved one’s case is still under investigation or in the court system, we can help you navigate the process.
  • We can attend court with you and make sure you understand what is going on.
  • We can provide regular updates from courts, police and corrections.

… providing emotional support

  • We honour your loved one and know this is a very difficult time.
  • We can provide emotional support or we can refer you to others – like counselors and Elders – to help you on your healing journey.

FILU is a unit of the Department of Justice’s Victim Services branch.
