About Us

The BC Association of Aboriginal Friendship Centres

We acknowledge with respect and gratitude the Lkwungen-speaking peoples (Songhees and Esquimalt) and the WSÁNEĆ peoples (Saanich), the traditional keepers of this land, for allowing us to work, play and reside on their traditional and unceded territory.

The BC Association of Aboriginal Friendship Centres (BCAAFC) is the umbrella association for the 25 Friendship Centres throughout the Province of British Columbia.

The BCAAFC works to:

Promote the betterment of Friendship Centers in the Province of British Columbia.

Maintain communication between Friendship Centres, other provincial associations and the National Association of Friendship Centres.

Act as a unifying body for Friendship Centers.

Advise the government, as requested by the collective centers.

Support the development of programs to improve the quality of life for Indigenous people living in BC.
