The meeting with the premier will take place in Montreal, Que., concerning the abuse allegations with Surête du Québec on the Indigenous women, and the creation of a commission.

"This commission is not yet established but it will give us a direction to find solutions on situations like Val-d'Or," said Coon-Coome.

The meeting with Couillard will determine the decision on the call for an inquiry.
