Welcome To The BCCLA Northern Chapter
We are the Northern Chapter of the British Columbia Civil Liberties Association. We are a group of freedom loving individuals who have volunteered our time to help protect and promote civil liberties and human rights in Prince George and area.
On April 12, 2011, we opened an office in Prince George, the first office outside the Lower Mainland in the 50 year history of the BCCLA.
Location and hours
Our office is located at the following address:
201 – 1575 5th Avenue
Prince George, BC
Phone: (250) 277-1941
We are open Tuesdays from 12:00 p.m. to 3:00 pm and Thursdays from 10:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m.
Police complaint service
Individuals who feel their rights have been violated including while dealing with the RCMP are welcome to come down to our office and we will ensure their complaints get filed properly.
To ensure confidentiality, all complaints will be submitted online via a secure website and no files or records will be kept by our office.
Referrals for Northern BC residents
Even though we are currently focusing on assisting with RCMP complaints, if you are seeking assistance with other civil liberties or human rights issues, please feel free to contact us and we can help you access the resources of our Vancouver office.
If you are stopped by a police officer, do you know what information you have to provide? Do you know what questions to ask? You can get your complimentary copy of The Arrest Handbook at the Prince George BCCLA office.
