Purpose: The Mi'kmaq Confederacy of PEI (MCPEI) has entered into a funding agreement with the Department of Justice Canada to manage the Aboriginal Justice Program (AJP). The MCPEI AJP works to create an environment that allows Aboriginal people to self-administer justice by building a traditional justice system based on holistic community values and to provide community-based alternatives to deal with crime. The purpose of the Program is to develop and maintain a sustainable justice support system for all Aboriginal people involved in the PEI Justice System. The Program focuses on the process of helping offenders, victims, and communities get to the root of the issues that led to the crime(s) being committed. The MCPEI AJP works with communities and service organizations to create a system that provides offenders access to traditional justice methods, such as sentencing circles. The MCPEI also works to promote understanding between Aboriginal people and the mainstream justice system through information-sharing.
