WE ARE LOOKING FORWARD TO SEEING YOU THERE ON MARCH 28 & 29TH AT THE ST MARY'S CULTURAL CENTRE.


Indigenous offenders continue to be disproportionately represented at all levels of the Canadian criminal justice system. Current statistics show that while Indigenous people make up only 4% of the population in Canada, 23.2% of the federal inmate population is Indigenous. The high rate of incarceration for Indigenous peoples has been linked to systemic discrimination and attitudes based on racial or cultural prejudice, as well as economic and social disadvantage, substance abuse and intergenerational loss, violence and trauma.

Of its 94 recommendations, 17 of the Truth and Reconciliation’s calls to action deal directly with the criminal justice system and how it serves (or fails to serve) Indigenous people in this country. The Turning Leaf Foundation is excited to partner with Indigenous Justice to host a 3-day Conference for First Nation Communities, Leaders and Government Agencies with keynote speakers focusing on the themes of the TRC in relation to Indigenous justice and traditional healing.

The theme of this year’s conference is:

  • Addiction Services & Mental Health
  • Youth and Justice
  • Traditional Healing & Wellness
  • Gladue Report
  • After Care and Court Workers
  • Youth Panel
  • Restorative Justice

Please join us on March 28 & 29, 2018

If you have any questions, please call 300-5801
