On November 20th, the BC First Nations Justice Council (BCFNJC) announced that 10 new Indigenous Justice Centres will open next year, locations including Nanaimo, Victoria, Vancouver, Surrey and Kelowna.  

“Indigenous Justice Centres offer culturally appropriate justice services to support Indigenous people with their interactions in the colonial justice system. Designed collaboratively with the rights and title holders on whose territory they are located, the Centres support the capacity in the Indigenous communities to grow, reclaim and increase their justice infrastructure.” (BCFNJC, 2022)
