Purpose: The Wet'suwet'en Treaty Office has entered into a contribution agreement with the Department of Justice to manage the Wet'suwet'en Unlocking Aboriginal Justice Program. The Wet'suwet'en Unlocking Aboriginal Justice Program provides prevention, pre and post-charge diversion, alternative measures, sentence advisory, rehabilitation and victim support within the Wet'suwet'en territory in and around Smithers, BC. The main objectives of the program are to assume greater responsibility for the administration of justice, and to assist the justice system to improve its relevance and effectiveness with First Nations communities. These objectives are accomplished through regular meetings with the Elders Advisory Board, protocol development with local justice agencies, cultural activities, workshops and training, as well as conflict resolution and support agency referrals.
