The Tsuu T’ina Court is an on-reserve provincial court with an aboriginal judge, Crown prosecutor and court clerks. The Court deals with criminal matters (adults and youth), and with violations of federal and provincial statutes and First Nation by-laws. The associated Office of the Peacemaker operates a peacemaking program that employs culturally appropriate mediation and alternative dispute resolution techniques. The program engages offenders, victims, family and community members in resolving conflicts, addressing underlying causes of offending behaviour, and promoting a more peaceful community.
A Tsuu T’ina Peacemaker Advisory Council provides direction on matters that relate to the establishment, implementation, mandate and administration of the Peacemaker Program. The Advisory Council is comprised of representatives from the Tsuu T’ina First Nation, the presiding judge of the Tsuu T’ina Court, and federal and provincial justice agencies.
