Community-Based Justice Programs - Manitoba

Community Holistic Circle Healing Program

Recipient: Hollow Water First Nation

The Hollow Water Community Holistic Circle Healing Program is designed to prevent, intervene in and heal the intergenerational effects of sexual abuse and domestic violence. The Program delivers diversion and alternative measures, community sentencing and healing circles that are culturally appropriate and reflect the needs of individual victims, offenders, family members, and the community. The Program offers counselling to victims, offenders and their extended families, and provides support groups, oversight of court-ordered assessments, and traditional healing therapy, such as wilderness programs.

MKO First Nations Justice Strategy Program

Recipient: Manitoba Keewatinowi Okimakanak Inc.

The MKO First Nations Justice Strategy operates pre- and post-charge diversion programs in 16 First Nation communities in northern Manitoba. The Program's mandate is to implement changes to the way that justice is administered in First Nations communities, in a manner that is culturally appropriate, through the continued management of a magistrate's court. This also includes diversion to community justice committees supported by community justice workers.

The Program's goals are to utilize restorative rather then retributive justice, shifting the focus from the offender to the community. The system uses healing, teaching, support and culturally appropriate restoration of the offender to the community, including the victim.

Onashowewin Justice Program

Recipient: Onashowewin Inc.

The objective of the Onashowewin Justice Program is to help restore, heal and transform relationships between offenders, victims and the community. The Program provides post-charge diversion and restorative justice programming to Aboriginal youths and adults in Winnipeg. The Program also offers mediation between victims and offenders, community justice forums, conciliation, and offender-specific programs.

Tribal Court System Program

Recipient: St. Theresa Point First Nation

The Tribal Court System Program is a community-based diversion program providing restorative justice alternatives in the community of St. Theresa Point. The Program provides a forum for the education, disposition and reconciliation of the accused person within a community that emphasizes traditional Aboriginal customs, beliefs and methods.
