In 2015, media reports surfaced indicating that many Aboriginal women were coerced into having tubal ligations in Saskatchewan. In July of 2017, in response to the allegations of forced sterilization, the then Saskatoon Health Region (now the Saskatchewan Health Authority) released a Review titled – External Review: Tubal Ligation in the Saskatoon Health Region: The Lived Experience of Aboriginal Women. The Report highlighted “pervasive systemic racism” in the health care system and detailed the experiences of Aboriginal women from Saskatoon and surrounding areas, who had reported being coerced into having tubal ligations.
