Purpose: The Awasis Agency of Northern Manitoba Inc. has a contribution agreement with the Department of Justice Canada to operate the Mee-noo-stah-tan Mi-ni-si-win First Nation Family Justice Initiative. The Initiative delivers an alternative to child and family concerns outside of the regular social services and justice systems to 18 communities in Northern Manitoba. The objectives of the Initiative are to deliver culturally specific family mediation to address the needs of children at risk of entering the Child and Family Services system and to address the needs of those children already in the system. The Initiative accomplishes these objectives through a community-based conflict resolution process using family mediators, who bring together family, community members, Elders and community service providers.
