Construction is underway at the University of Victoria as it embarks on the development of its National Centre for Indigenous Laws (NCIL). Faculty, Elders, ministers, and community members recently gathered to celebrate the construction of the building, which will include spaces for sharing knowledge and history and holding ceremonies. The building’s design follows sustainable principles and incorporates larger trees into exposed structural elements. It is set to open its doors in 2024. UVic also received a new funding commitment from the Law Foundation of British Columba, raising its contribution from $5M to $11M.
