In September 2017\, the BCAJC\, Attorney General\, and Minister of Public Safety and Solicitor General signed the attached Memorandum of Understanding with the aim of jointly developing a provincial Indigenous Justice Strategy\, reflecting the following key priorities: \n\nReconciliation with Indigenous people;\nDecreasing the overrepresentation of Indigenous people in the justice system;\nImproving the experience of Indigenous people within the justice system;\nAddressing violence against Indigenous people\, especially women and girls;\nEngagement with Indigenous communities and organizations in a respectful and culturally appropriate manner;\nImproved access to justice services by Indigenous people; and\,\nDesigning services that provide Indigenous people with culturally relevant\, flexibleand user-focused processes.\n\nBuilding from the wisdom provided in prior reports\, recommendations\, and recent engagements – including the tenth and eleventh Justice Summits – this First Nations Provincial Justice Forum strives to further the discussion around the crucial issue of justicereform as it pertains to Indigenous peoples in British Columbia. The FNJC is seeking to bring together First Nations leaders\, First Nations organizations\, practitioners\, and subject matter experts with an in-depth understanding of Indigenous justice issues to discuss opportunities for transformative change. Our vision for this event is to share and gather insights directly from community for the purpose of informing the FNJC’s contributions towards the provincial Indigenous Justice Strategy development. \nDeadline for registration is April 5\, 2019.\n\n\n\nA travel subsidy will be available to those attending the Forum. For more information please contact our event team at or 604-646-3558. \nWe sincerely look forward to your participation at the First Nations Provincial Forum and hope you can join us. \nView Invitation pdf \n\n\n\n\n\n\n URL: LOCATION:3099 Corvette Way\, Richmond\, BC\, V6X 4K3\, Canada ORGANIZER;CN="First%20Nations%20Justice%20Council" END:VEVENT END:VCALENDAR
