About Us
The Scow Institute The Scow Institute works towards greater understanding between Aboriginal and non-Aboriginal peoples through information that is fact based, non-partisan, and accessible on topical issues that affect all Canadians. The Institute was founded in 2001 by retired Judge Alfred J. Scow, the first Aboriginal person called to the Bar and to the Bench in British Columbia, and other interested persons. The Scow Institute is primarily funded by The Law Foundation of British Columbia and has received funding from the Notary Foundation and Vancity.
