The Conseil de la Nation Atikamekw has entered into a contribution agreement with the Department of Justice Canada to manage the project called ''Atikamekw community-based justice process". The Conseil de la Nation Atikamekw delivers culturally and legally relevant alternatives for adult offenders in the Atikamekw communities of Manouane and Weymontachie.
This project has the following objectives:
- to continue reflecting on the current justice system;
- to consult with those concerned;
- to ensure the integration of traditional and contemporary justice practices in order to identify the process that will respond to the needs of the Atikamekw community.
