Invitation for Applications

The British Columbia Public Interest Advocacy Centre (BCPIAC) Board is interested in candidates with a passion for our cause.

BCPIAC is a not-for-profit, regulatory and social justice law firm in Vancouver. Our mission is to advance the interests of generally unrepresented or underrepresented individuals and groups in areas of major public concern with a focus on the growing issue of energy poverty.

BCPIAC’s work focuses on energy regulation including regular interventions before the BC Utilities Commission on electricity, natural gas and ICBC matters on behalf of low and fixed income residential ratepayers; as well as anti-poverty and providing advice and assistance to individuals & advocacy groups throughout British Columbia in social justice work (human rights complaints, judicial reviews, litigation, negotiation, and public education).

About the Board

The Board is made up of legal, private sector and non-profit professionals and representatives of the communities we serve who have made a commitment to be involved and assist with governing the society. In order to meet the challenges and effectively lead this dynamic organization, BCPIAC requires candidates who can provide the leadership and strategic direction at the Board of Director level. Previous Board experience is not required, although an asset.
