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
