PBSC-UVic is proud to be an ongoing partner of RAVEN (Respecting Aboriginal Values and Environmental Needs), a Canadian non-profit charitable organization that raises legal defense funds to help Indigenous groups seek social and environmental justice. Currently RAVEN is actively supporting the causes of the Beaver Lake Cree, the Tsilhqot’in Nation, and Skeena First Nations – we encourage you to check out their website and learn more about these cases at:
RAVEN is also engaged in promoting public education about Indigenous rights and legal traditions. Our PBSC volunteers are helping with this initiative by providing research support and contributing to public legal education materials. Through this collaborative effort, RAVEN has created an amazing plain language primer outlining the key areas of Indigenous law in Canada, which is a must read for everyone.
