Be the One Gala Celebrates 40th Anniversary of the Justice Institute of BC


Lindsay Kenney was proud to support the JIBC Foundation’s Be the One Gala on November 15th.  The Foundation was formed to raise funds to support education, students, and research at JIBC.

The 40th Anniversary event recognized individuals and groups committed to impacting lives through justice, public safety, and community leadership. Amongst the honourees was the BC First Responders Mental Health Committee, a multi-agency group established in 2015 to promote positive mental health for first responders across the province.

Sukhminder Virk,  LK lawyer and Chair of the JIBC Board of Governors  said, “it’s an honour to be part of this event recognizing the role of first responders and the numerous people who support health, justice, and public safety in our communities every day.”

JIBC educates and trains students for potential careers in law enforcement, paramedicine, firefighting and emergency management, search-and-rescue, security, bylaw enforcement, community care licencing, intelligence analysis, and tactical criminal analysis. It also develops and hones skills in counselling, mediation, negotiation, conflict resolution, and leadership.

Congratulations to all of the 2018 Justice & Public Safety Award Honourees.
