The Advocacy Centre is a non-profit, community-based organization which provides legal information, education and problem solving for low-income residents of the Central Kootenays. We also provide specialized victim assistance to victims of relationship violence, sexual assault and child abuse.

The Advocacy Centre provides advocacy to individuals as well as workshops and presentations on legal issues. It has long been a voice in the community speaking to issues of poverty and discrimination. Our work and the materials we produce focus on topics such as welfare, tenancy, women’s safety and poverty survival. Our advocacy services are free of charge. There are sliding scale fees for training and presentations.

A ten-member Board of Directors appointed by the Government of British Columbia governs Northern Health. The current chair of the NH Board is Dr. Charles Jago, who was appointed to the position in 2007.

 

While board members come from communities across the region, by-laws establish that their role is to make decisions to meet health needs for the entire region rather than representing a particular community or area. Some of the Board’s functions include (but are not limited to):

  • Governance and oversight responsibilities;
  • Setting overall strategic direction for the organization;
  • Approval of budget submissions and business plans submitted by staff;
  • Receiving progress reports on organizational activities and business plans;
  • Reviewing and approving capital plans;
  • Granting privileges for physicians to practice in Northern Health facilities, on the advice and recommendation of the Northern Health Medical Advisory Committee; and
  • Reviewing and approving overarching strategies to address aspects of the performance agreement Northern Health holds with the Province of British Columbia.

The Northern Health Board meets approximately every two months in regular session, with an open board meeting and public presentation session at all regular meetings. The board ensures that one meeting per year is held in a Northeast community with another in a Northwest community. The remaining meetings are held in the Northern Interior, usually in Prince George.
