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, Métis, 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.
