BC’s Family Information Liaison Unit (FILU) works directly with families of missing and murdered Indigenous women and girls, to gather information that many families are seeking about the loss of their loved one. Services will be provided in a trauma-informed, culturally-safe manner.

As a “one-stop information service” for families, the five member FILU team will provide a liaison function between families of missing and murdered Indigenous women and girls and other agencies and services, including the criminal justice system, social services, health services, coroners service, and policing. FILU staff will gather the requested information families seek, and where such information may not be available, they will be able to provide an explanation as to why that may be (e.g. investigation remains open; privacy law considerations).

As part of the FILU team reporting to the Senior Family Support Worker and the Director, the Family Support Worker provides frontline supports and services to family members of missing and murdered Indigenous women and girls.

The Family Support Worker is a specialized position requiring considerable experience working with Indigenous family members and communities, and brings a thorough knowledge of cultural and victim support services available throughout the province.

Prince George is the largest city in Northern British Columbia, and boasts a wide variety of restaurants and entertainment, including the Prince George Symphony Orchestra. Prince George is also located next to several provincial parks, which provide camping and boating amenities.
