The federal government says a Canadian was killed in Peru.
Global Affairs Canada says the death was related to the reported assassination of Indigenous elder Olivia Arevalo Lomas.
Arevalo Lomas was a human rights activist of the Shipibo-Konibo people in the Ucayali region.
The federal government says it is providing consular assistance to the family of the Canadian, whom they did not identify.
A Peruvian news agency identified the Canadian as Sebastian Paul Woodroffe.
The government extended its condolences following Arevalo Lomas’s death.
