The First Peoples Justice Center’s vision is to have strong Indigenous communities that have access to Indigenous community-led justice processes rooted in decolonization, healing, respect, and Indigenous law.
Our services include support with Indigenous specific alternatives measures, services for those who have been harmed, help with reintegration post-incarceration and supervision of compensatory or community hours. We work closely with Elders, Knowledge Keepers and community partners to offer cultural programs, sharing circles, land-based activities and workshops.
We provide holistic support throughout an Aboriginal person’s experience in the justice and corrections system.
We offer culturally controlled and community-controlled alternatives to justice.
We aim to raise awareness and build the capacity of Aboriginal communities and community workers to address legal issues in a culturally appropriate manner.
