Community Legal Services

At Nokiiwin, we understand that navigating the justice system can be daunting, especially for those without legal training. That's why we're committed to providing support and guidance to our community members through our Community Legal Services.

Our Community Legal Workers, Mitch and Teresa are here to assist you every step of the way. They can help you understand the intricacies of the legal process, alleviate anxiety, and ensure you know what to expect and what is expected of you.

Our Community Legal Services encompass a range of support, including:

  1. Court Support: We provide assistance and support for individuals navigating the court system.

  2. Legal Aid Application Help: If you require legal aid, we can assist you with the application process.

  3. Legal Information Requests: Have questions about your legal rights or obligations? Mitch is here to provide accessible explanations.

  4. Indian Day School Claim Form Help: We offer assistance with filling out Indian Day School claim forms.

Our Community Legal Workers are dedicated to making legal information accessible to all community members. If you need a lawyer or qualified representative, we can help connect you with one. Additionally, if language barriers are a concern, we can assist in finding interpreters to ensure effective communication.

We understand the importance of tailored legal advice. Our Community Legal Workers can schedule appointments for community members to receive free legal advice on Criminal and Family Law matters, as well as any other law-related inquiries, from our Staff Lawyer.

For individuals appearing in the Northwest Region Satellite Courts of Marathon, Nipigon, and Geraldton, our Community Legal Workers can provide invaluable support. Whether the courts are operating virtually or in person, and can provide you with essential date, time, and dial-in information for your court appearances.

At Nokiiwin, we're dedicated to empowering our community members through knowledge and support. Contact Mitch or Teresa today to access our Community Legal Services and ensure you're prepared for every step of your legal journey.
