BC Association of Friendship Centres (BCAAFC) is seeking eight (8) adjudication committee members to support the distribution of the $5.34-million Indigenous Path Forward Community Funds to help end violence against Indigenous women, girls, and 2SLGBTQQIA people(s). Committee members will reflect all femme-identifying and gender-diverse persons, persons with a disability, and represent urban and rural regions throughout the province.
The BCAAFC Path Forward Adjudication Committee will: 
– Participate in the adjudication process to select successful candidates using a consensus model;
– Provide cultural and social perspectives on Indigenous anti-violence for the project; and, 
– Ensure that decisions and recommendations reflect an Indigenous perspective that respects and considers variations of different Nations, Communities, and distinctions (First Nation, M├ętis, Inuit) within BC and Nationally. 
The committee meetings will be held over the next year (approximately 2-3 meetings) and will include virtual meetings and an in-person gathering. Committee members will receive an honorarium for their time. Additionally, all expenses to attend in-person meeting(s) including travel, accommodation, and meals will be reimbursed.
