Legal Advocacy Program
Angela joined the Friendship Centre in 2009, having spent some time as a shelter support worker for Advocacy for Women and Children in Prince George, as well as completing her B.Sc in Psychology with a minor in First Nations Studies. Since joining us, Angela has spent significant time in specialized training offered through the Law Foundation of BC which has allowed her to gain specialized knowledge of the unique barriers faced by our Aboriginal population. Please call her to make an appointment!
The Legal Support Program provides advocacy, information, and referrals for low-income individuals surrounding residential tenancy, employment standards, access to income security, disability, workers compensation, and debt. It also provides outreach to communities including direct client services, workshops, and public legal information. If you need help negotiating the government systems that shape your daily life, call us or come in and see us. Appointments appreciated.
