Who We Are

The Prince Rupert Aboriginal Community Services Society originated under the umbrella of the Tsimshian Tribal Council (TTC), where we began delivering justice initiatives to Aboriginal people in 1999. After the TTC's closure, we continued our work and incorporated under the name 'Aboriginal Justice Society'. Since then, we have expanded our services to include medical transportation, homelessness prevention, and other important community programming.  To better reflect what we do, our organization was renamed in 2011. Today, we are the non-profit Prince Rupert Aboriginal Community Services Society (PRACSS).

Our Mission is to enrich the lives of Aboriginal people who come into our sphere of influence. This is accomplished through a variety ofsupportive programming for single people, families, children, elders and youth.
