– 2005/2006. The plan outlines the approach this ministry
will take to help realize government’s vision of a prosperous and
Over the past year this ministry has worked hard to achieve its
goals, objectives and New Era commitments. Already we have
accomplished much of what we set out to do, and we take pride in
the improvements made to the justice services and programs we deliver.

better our justice services and give British Columbians access to
a quality justice system that meets their needs.

be able to honour our commitments and implement meaningful reforms.

a significant mandate to assist in building a stable economy in
the province. In the next year we will work to achieve agreements
with First Nations that can lead to certainty around ownership and
use of Crown lands and resources, enhance the economic climate,
and bring prosperity and renewed hope to all citizens of British
