Community-Based Justice Programs - Prince Edward Island

Mi’kmaq Confederacy of PEI Aboriginal Justice Program

Recipient: Mi’kmaq Confederacy of PEI

The Mi’kmaq Confederacy of PEI Aboriginal Justice Program works to create an environment that allows Aboriginal people to self-administer justice by building a traditional justice system based on holistic community values.

The Program focuses on helping offenders, victims, and communities get to the root of the issues that led to the crime(s) being committed, through the circle process. As such, the Program seeks to involve the community in creating dispositions for the offender that satisfy the victim and the community using conflict-resolution circles, early intervention circles, sentencing circles, and healing circles.

The Program also promotes positive growth and mutual respect in Aboriginal and non-Aboriginal communities in Prince Edward Island, and strengthens the understanding of one another’s uniqueness through both training and cross-cultural sharing.
