The Ipperwash Inquiry

The Ipperwash Inquiry was established by the Government of Ontario under the Public Inquiries Act. Its mandate was to inquire and report on events surrounding the death of Dudley George, who was shot in 1995 during a protest by First Nations representatives at Ipperwash Provincial Park and later died. The Inquiry was also mandated to make recommendations that would avoid violence in similar circumstances in the future.

The Honourable Sidney B. Linden was appointed Commissioner. The Commissioner separated the Inquiry into two phases that ran concurrently: The evidentiary hearings that dealt with the events surrounding the death of Dudley George and the Policy and Research part that dealt with the issues directed to the avoidance of violence in similar circumstances.

The hearings began in Forest in July 2004 and ended in August 2006. The Report, containing finding and recommendations from both phases, was made public on May 31, 2007. It is available on this web page. Printed copies and CD-ROMs may be purchased from Publications Ontario.
