The St. Theresa Point First Nation has entered into a funding agreement with the Department of Justice Canada to manage and deliver the St. Theresa Point Tribal Court System Program.
The Program is a community-based diversion program serving both adults and youth, that provides restorative justice alternatives in the community of St. Theresa Point, Manitoba. This fly-in community is only accessible by plane, boat and winter road, and is therefore served by a circuit court which flies in every three months.
The Program receives diversions from the court, RCMP, and Band Constables. Through the delivery of traditional healing circles, offender-victim mediation and counselling, the Program supports community and victim healing, wrongdoer restoration and addresses substance abuse and incidental offending behaviour.
