Aboriginal Justice Strategy Evaluation
Police & Crown Online Survey

Introduction

This online survey is being administered on behalf of the Department of Justice Evaluation Division by Malatest & Associates, a professional research firm, as part of an evaluation of the Aboriginal Justice Strategy (AJS). The Aboriginal Justice Strategy supports cost shared programs that are developed and managed in partnership with Aboriginal communities, provinces, and territories. There are four program models that Aboriginal communities can develop and operate under the AJS: diversion/alternative measures, community sentencing, mediation and court/community justice programs.

This survey is one component of the evaluation, which includes other research activities to help us to better understand the level of awareness in the criminal justice system about the community-based justice programs and the extent to which they are serving aboriginal communities. In general the study will explore how well the AJS is working.

Your participation is voluntary however, your involvement is important as it will help us to assess the effectiveness of the community-based justice programs. The information you provide is for the evaluation only and will be used for no other purpose. Respondents will not be identified and no comments will be attributed to any individuals in the evaluation report.

We appreciate your support and thank you in advance for participating in this study.

The survey will take about 15 minutes to complete.
