Indigenous and First Nations

Indigenous and First Nations

BC CRN has always worked as allies and partners with Indigenous groups who work to keep their communities safe by:

  • Funding and supporting development of indigenous led and directed community response networks (CRNs).
  • Co-sponsoring provincial dialogues with indigenous agencies around the Common Experience Payments to prevent financial abuse.
  • Introducing training to on reserve indigenous communities.
  • Equipping Mentors with appropriate, culturally safe practices and materials.

BC CRN and local CRNs are committed to aligning prevention and education efforts to the outcomes and findings of the Truth and Reconciliation Committee Report of 2015.
