The Meadow Lake Tribal Council (MLTC) has entered into a contribution agreement with the Department of Justice Canada to manage the MLTC Community Justice Program.
MLTC coordinates the development of community justice structures, plans and services for the nine member First Nations of the Tribal Council (Birch Narrows Dene Nation, Buffalo River Dene Nation, Canoe Lake Cree Nation, Clearwater River Dene Nation, English River First Nation, Flying Dust First Nation, Island Lake First Nation, Makwa Sahgaiehcan First Nation and Waterhen Lake First Nation).
The long-term vision of the program is to develop a culturally grounded, community controlled justice system that provides citizens access to a full range of services in both criminal and civil areas. This system operates in the context of self government, and complements existing federal/provincial justice services.
Activities vary from committee to committee and include crime prevention; mediation and dispute resolution; healing, talking and sentencing circles; alternative measures programs for adults and youth; victim services; and community-based correctional services that focus on offender rehabilitation and reintegration, and victim/offender healing.
