Government Cuts Continue to Cripple Aboriginal Organizations

The BC Association of Friendship Centers released a statement on February 6th entitled BC Friendship Centers Face Funding Crisis regarding major cuts to their core funding program by the Federal Government. There are 25 centers in British Columbia with an estimated 1000 employees and the cuts appears to have come with minimal time to react.

The BC Metis Federation is sharing the article as many Metis people are served effectively through Friendship Centers across British Columbia. The cuts raise concerns in light of the effects of some of the most vulnerable people in society. Moreover BC Metis Federations is confused by the cuts considering the millions spent by the Federal Government through MNBC which is recouping millions in debt to address.

BC Metis Federation is asking our members to share your views and comments about this latest Federal Government decision on our website.
