To ensure continuity of service during the COVID-19 pandemic, all BCGEU offices are closed and staff are working remotely to assist members. We recommend that you email the appropriate office if you require assistance.
The union is in the process of preparing a formal submission for the MMIWG national inquiry. As part of the development of the submission there will be three member engagement forums taking place: Victoria, Vancouver and Prince George.
In anticipation of these events, we are asking members who have experience working with Indigenous women and girls in Corrections to express their interest in attending and participating in this important forum.
At the forum, members from various components of the union will be working together to identify systemic barriers and issues faced by Indigenous women and girls, including policies, procedures and general access to services.
If you have experience working with Indigenous women and girls, have good knowledge of the policies, procedures and programs within your sector and would like to attend, please fill out the questionnaire and submit it online to express your interest.
Space is limited so we ask that you complete the questionnaire as soon as possible.
If you have any questions please contact Keith Cameron at firstname.lastname@example.org or by phone at 604-473-5487 or toll free at 1-800-663-1674.
