What is the BC Wrongful Death Law Reform Society
The BC Wrongful Death Law Reform Society was founded by families who have lost a loved one to wrongful death in response to the biggest human rights issue facing the province today. Our goal is to modernize British Columbia’s antiquated wrongful death legislation, which predates confederation (1846). BC is presently the last of all the provinces, including the Yukon, yet to have undertaken this critical legislative modernization to allow for dignity, value, and protections for all its citizens under the law. Entirely volunteer-run non-profit, the Society has rallied the public to submit over 12,000 petition signatures as of March 2021 to our elected officials and has been featured on Global News, CTV, CBC, CKNW, and many more media outlets. This is a great opportunity to gain hands-on experience and mentorship by leaders in the legal advocacy and human rights community.
