Purpose: The Nuxalk First Nation has entered into a contribution agreement with the Department of Justice Canada to manage the Nuxalk Restorative Justice Program (NRJP). The program's overall goal is to implement the restorative justice program framework into the Nuxalk First Nation community and the mainstream justice system. The NRJP uses police and Crown-based diversion/alternative measures, as well as input into sentencing decisions, to provide the windows for the Nuxalk Nation to assume greater responsibility for administering justice to its people and for developing more culturally relevant and effective resolutions to conflict. To exploit these opportunities to move towards a comprehensive community justice program, the Nuxalk First Nation is developing program administrative capacity, culturally appropriate dispute resolution processes, and protocol arrangements with justice and services agencies.
