BC Friendship Centres Over Capacity

At this time, BC Friendship Centres have not received any additional funding to support the increase in requests for services from BC First Nations members during the COVID-19 pandemic.⁣⁣

Please know that each Friendship Centre is doing the very best they can to serve their urban Indigenous clients and community members in need, but are over capacity with reduced resources and no additional supports.⁣⁣

Friendship Centre staff are challenged with balancing their own heath and safety, the health and safety of their families, and the health and safety of their clients.⁣⁣

Thank you for your patience and understanding during this time of crisis.⁣

Please connect with us if there is anyway we can collaborate to better serve those in need: communications@bcaafc.com
