Message from the President

We live in an ever-changing world where prosperous families, cities and economies depend on the stability and reliability inherent in just societies and safe communities. To help maintain and strengthen this important foundation of prosperity, every day, we rely on passionate and dedicated public safety personnel and professionals helping to keep our communities safe.

Justice Institute of British Columbia (JIBC) is proud of our vital role in providing the education and training for tens of thousands of public and community safety professionals and volunteers each year in B.C., across Canada and around the world.

The positive impact of our graduates is strongly influenced, and in many cases, relies on, the dedication and commitment to student success by JIBC’s experienced faculty. Your efforts are clearly appreciated by your students. According to the BC Student Outcomes Survey, year after year, the vast majority of graduates rank the quality of the instruction they received at JIBC very highly, stating that the education they received from you helped them in a position related to the training they received. And for those who are interested in pursuing further education, 91% said their JIBC education prepared them for that too.

As the needs of people in public and community safety continue to change, you are helping JIBC contribute to the life-long learning and long-term success of our students, graduates and clients across various sectors in the community, government, business and industry. To each of you, I want to express my sincere appreciation for all that you do to help our students excel both in class and in their workplaces and the communities they serve.

Dr. Michel Tarko

JIBC President
