As note on the BC Legal Services Society’s ELAN blog, the Atira Women’s Resource Society has released Your Rights on Reserve: A Legal Toolkit for Aboriginal Women in BC.
The guide was produced by Aboriginal women, for Aboriginal women, under the leadership of Atira’s Legal Advocate, Amber Prince, and includes:
“chapters on taxation, employment issues on Reserve, social assistance/welfare, education, Indian Status, Band membership, Reserve land and housing issues, wills and estates issues, family law, relationship violence, Ministry of Children and Families Development and governance issues”.
The guide was funded by the Law Foundation of British Columbia.
Atira also provides free legal clinics throughout the week in the Downtown Eastside to low-income women in a safe, confidential, women’s-only space.
