Purpose: The Tl'azt'en Nation has entered into a funding agreement with the Department of Justice Canada to manage the Healing Circle Program. The objective of the Program is to impose appropriate measures to ensure compensation for the victim, levy a consequence on the offender, deliver required services to families and establish a monitoring program to ensure compliance with agreed upon restitution. Cases chosen for the Program will be based on offenders who are in contact with the justice system for crime related to theft under $5,000, vandalism and adolescent social violence. This Program will give the opportunity to resolve crime related matters, using traditional alternative sentencing methods. Traditional alternative sentencing, based on consensus by all parties involved, could include compensatory work service done directly for the victim, curfew, traditional and cultural food gatherings, treatment or banishment (or a combination). The result being restitution for the victim, consequences for the offender and a reduced caseload going through the mainstream court system.
