PARTNERSHIPS

We work in partnership exclusively with the BC First Nations Justice Council (BCFNJC). 
 
The FNJC is the only organization with a mandate from the First Nations Summit (FNS), the Union of British Columbia Indian Chiefs (UBCIC), and the British Columbia Assembly of First Nations (BCAFN). The BCAJC, Attorney General, and Minister of Public Safety and Solicitor General signed a Memorandum of Understanding (Sept 2017). The goal of the MOU is to jointly develop a provincial Indigenous Justice Strategy, reflecting the following key priorities:
 
  1. Reconciliation with Indigenous people;

  2. Decreasing the overrepresentation of Indigenous people in the justice system;

  3. Improving the experience of Indigenous people within the justice system;

  4. Addressing violence against Indigenous people, especially women and girls;

  5. Engagement with Indigenous communities and organizations in a respectful and culturally appropriate manner;

  6. Improved access to justice services by Indigenous people; and,

  7. Designing services that provide Indigenous people with culturally relevant, flexible and user-focused processes.

 

We do not have any other partnerships in place at this time.
