Purpose: The goals of the Thunder Bay Indian Friendship Centre’s Aboriginal Community Council program are: to restore a greater degree of responsibility by the Aboriginal community within the City of Thunder Bay for the conduct of Aboriginal people in conflict with the justice system; to encourage offenders to accept responsibility for their criminal behaviour and to be accountable for their own conduct by becoming active in rectifying the wrong they have caused; and to demonstrate that the Aboriginal Community Council Program can reduce the rate at which Aboriginal participants in the program re-offend in comparison to the rate at which Aboriginal people re-offend after being convicted and sentenced in the regular court system.
