Indigenous Leadership Circle
First Nations, Inuit and Métis members promote cultural safety in the union and the workplace while working to dismantle the harmful effects of colonization and Indigenous-specific racism.
The Indigenous Leadership Circle offers a welcoming space for all Indigenous members.
The Circle meets twice a year, bringing together one representative from each BCNU region. For more information on the roles and responsibilities of a caucus regional representative, please click here. The Circle also sends voting delegates to the annual BCNU Convention. If you represent your region on the ILC, and would like to request funding from BCNU to further your group's goals and initiatives, please complete the Regional Caucus Funding Request Form.
For more information, or to join the Indigenous Leadership Circle, contact the chair or Hanif Karim, Human Rights, Equity and Health Policy Officer.
