Purpose: The Awasis Agency of Northern Manitoba has entered into a contribution agreement with the Department of Justice Canada to operate the Meenoostahtan Minisiwin First Nations Family Justice Program. The objective of the Program is to deliver culturally specific family mediation to address the needs of children at risk of entering the Child and Family Services system, as well as the needs of those children already in the system. The Program provides an alternative system to the mainstream social services and justice system for several communities in northern Manitoba. The Program accomplishes its objective through a community-based conflict-resolution process using family mediators, who bring together family, community members, Elders, and community service providers.
