Elders Voice Newsletter
We publish a monthly provincial newsletter called the Elders Voice. This newsletter is a valuable source of information for the many thousands of Aboriginal Elders in our province.
Starting October 1, 2023, we will distribute the GATHERING NEWS, which will provide all the necessary information, questions, and answers related to the Elders Gathering.
The primary objective of B.C. Elders Communication Center Society is to ensure that B.C.’s First Nations Elders know that they are valued, their legacies will be preserved, and their feelings and culture matter.
The B.C. Elders Communication Center Society serves as a central communication hub for Aboriginal Elders, their families, and support workers in British Columbia. No such provincial network exists for Elders on or off reserve in Canada.
We fulfill this purpose by:
Organizing the Elders Network
We work with Elders’ representatives, including Elders Presidents, Secretaries, First Nation’s Band Office staff members, Health Workers, Social Development Workers, Councilors, and, sometimes, Chiefs. They act as liaisons to their elders.
The B.C. Elders Communication Center Society offers a toll-free number, email, fax, and physical address where people can contact an individual dedicated to helping with Elders-related matters.
Our Elders Voice newsletter is distributed to Elders’ contact people in each community, both on and off reserve ensuring a continuous flow of information to the many thousands of Aboriginal Elders in our province.
B.C. Elders Website - "Preserving the Past" (Aug. 31, 2002)
We take pride in hosting the first-ever B.C. Elders Website – “Preserving the Past,” an open platform for people worldwide to learn about our respected Indigenous Elders, their involvement, the significance of their lives, and their aspirations for the future.
Let Us Honour Our Elders
Join us in preserving the wisdom, culture, and heritage of B.C.’s First Nations Elders. Together, we celebrate the strength and resilience of our Elders and ensure their voices are heard. Contact us for more information, assistance, or with any questions.
