The Indigenous Justice Centre (IJC) in Prince George offers legal services to Indigenous people in the community who otherwise cannot access it. They may not be eligible for Legal Aid for a variety of reasons, or need legal advice on matters not covered by Legal Aid.
The Prince George IJC has a Community Outreach Coordinator working with Nations and local service providers to maintain accurate, up-to-date information on each program, eligibility criteria, wait lists and more for programming that may be of interest to our clients.
The Prince George IJC also provides reintegration services for people coming back into community from correctional institutions.
