Legal Information Community Forum: Thompson-Nicola Regional District Library System – Kamloops



Joëlle Samson of the Thompson-Nicola Regional District Library System Library hosted a legal information forum at the TNRD Kamloops branch in November. We had 16 representatives from a variety of community groups attend, including:

Ask Wellness Society
Canadian Mental Health Association, Kamloops
Courthouse Libraries BC, Kamloops
Elizabeth Fry Society
Family Justice Services
Kamloops Immigrant Services
Kamloops Sexual Assault Counselling Centre
MS Society Kamloops
RCMP Victim Services
Thompson Rivers University
TNRD Library

Attendees discussed services as well as challenges in providing legal information and support in the community. They also agreed it was a good opportunity to touch base with other organizations in the area and that it would be beneficial to have more opportunities to keep in contact.

Thank you Joëlle and TNRD Library for hosting it was a wonderful opportunity to learn about the organizations and resources available in the Kamloops community. Thank you everyone for attending and for sharing information about your organizations!
