Purpose: Nishnawbe-Aski Legal Services Corporation has entered into a funding agreement with the Department of Justice Canada to operate the Restorative Justice Program. The Restorative Justice Program is a pre- and post-charge diversion program serving 22 Nishnawbe-Aski Nation communities across Northern Ontario. The Program utilizes a Community Accountability Conferencing model, which provides a traditional and cultural alternative to the mainstream justice system and puts the responsibility for maintaining community peace and control back in the hands of the community. Restorative Justice Workers and Justice Committees utilize culturally and community appropriate methods when dealing with diversions from the courts and police services, to assist offenders in accepting responsibility for their actions; and to provide collective support to victims.
