The program is unique in that it provides sentencing advice through its family conferencing process. It uses family conferencing and the Dena Keh justice model. It encourages the elders, volunteers and service agencies to participate in the process and seeks to integrate traditional values and practices into the criminal justice system. Consultations are held with the victim as well as with the victim's family and the offender's family. A program co-ordinator and a family facilitator support the work of the Dena Keh Council. The RCMP makes referrals.
