Indigenous women and children in remote communities are subject to a “risk pile up”. These populations may face negative consequences from remote construction camps, including increased rates of sexual assault and violence, addictions, sexually transmitted infections, and family violence as a result of the presence of industrial camps and transient work forces. Through a collaborative process that included interviews with community members, Firelight supported research to generate strategies, policies and programs for municipalities, companies, Indigenous communities, and the BC Government to implement for the protection of women, youth and communities.
