For over 20 years . . .
The Aboriginal Rights Coalition of British Columbia
We are a coaltion of aboriginal organizations, the major churches of Canada, and
local community groups.
ARC (BC) has a vision of a Canadian society in which First Nations are free to exercise
the legal and political powers necessary to take control over their own lives, territories,
We believe that these issues represent matters of fundamental justice and human rights
for aboriginal and non-aboriginal people alike. We seek to achieve this vision through
peaceful change, working to build understanding and reconciliation between native and
non-native communities, and supporting fair and equitable treaties.
ARC (BC) is committed to justice for the First Nations of Canada
