The objective of the Prince Albert Grand Council (PAGC) Justice Initiative is to develop and deliver alternative measures programs to each of the PAGC member First Nations. The PAGC Justice Planning Commission provides direction and support to twelve community justice committees.
The Justice Planning Commission and the community justice committees operate diversion programs using mediation, family group conferencing, healing circles and sentencing circles. The program is involved in other justice-related activities including victim services, crime prevention, and community-based correctional services that focus on offender reintegration and rehabilitation, and victim/offender healing. In addition, the program is developing and implementing a spiritual healing lodge, police management boards and a men’s aftercare spiritual lodge.
