Our Work

BCPIAC's areas of focus aim to address systemic discrimination that affects low and fixed income people in British Columbia. Systemic discrimination arises when an institution exercises a pattern of policies or practices that discriminate a given group of people.

ACCESS TO LEGAL AID

Every day low income people go to courts and tribunals across the country without any legal representation. They struggle to follow the complex rules of the court, to gather the evidence they need to establish their case, and to get their views across to a decision-maker.

ACCESS TO WELFARE

BCPIAC works on systemic issues concerning provincial income assistance (welfare). We are currently focusing on issues impacting access to welfare.
