Purpose: The Ahousaht First Nation has entered into a community-based justice program fund contribution agreement with the Department of Justice to manage the Chim-an-ah program. The Chim-an-ah program supports processes to integrate traditional and western laws and aims to reduce crime and incarceration rates amongst community members. The program targets elders, young offenders, and victims as main priority groups in the Ahousaht community. Some program objectives include reintegration, restoring and strengthening harmony between the offender and his or her community, and empowering the Ahousaht community to take responsibility for local justice issues, thereby keeping conflict resolution processes out of the mainstream justice system.
