The BCFNJC’s Gladue Report Program reflects a significant reduction in the administrative burden on counsel and Gladue writers with the existing process. The Gladue Services Department of the BCFNJC will handle the signing of consent forms and will pay the Gladue Report writer, removing this responsibility from the writer. 

The provincial Gladue Program will transition from Legal Aid BC to the BC First Nations Justice Council (BCFNJC) on April 1, 2021. After that date, any First Nations, Métis or Inuit person can request a Gladue report, whether they have retained a private lawyer or are clients of Legal Aid BC. 

Effective April 1, the process for requesting a Gladue Report will involve the users requesting Gladue Reports through the BCFNJC website at and using the Gladue Information Management System (GIMS). 

During this first phase of implementation, as with the existing process, user accounts will be approved for Defense Counsel only. 

This on-demand webinar introduces the BCFNJC Gladue Program and the Gladue Information Management System (GIMS).
