Providing legal services and support to communities
We enhance access to justice for our community members through offering legal advice, education, court support, and victim support.
In 2012, Nokiiwin Board of Directors in consultation with leadership, identified enhanced legal advisory services as a strategic direction to move towards.
Requests had been received from members of Nokiiwin communities to assist in accessing legal services as they were not able to access services that were specific to other treaty territories. Nokiiwin began to look at what legal services are currently available to members, identify general gaps in these services, and is starting to develop a broad strategic path that can be followed to support improved access to justice for community members.
