Aboriginal Organizations & Services

The Guide to Aboriginal Organizations and Services is a resource listing of Aboriginal community-based services and organizations. Most are not-for-profit and Aboriginal operated.

The Guide supports the relationship between the Province and Aboriginal people and their communities. It provides other community service organizations, government ministries and agencies, and non-Aboriginal citizens an insight into the scope of Aboriginal services and organizations offered in British Columbia. 

The guide is updated annually.
