Nemaska Justice Committee

Meaning of the name:

The meaning of the Nemaska Nadmajaiwin Nadmajaisuuch logo is about community collaboration in the spirit of restorative justice or Miinwatsiiun Nadmajaiwin. When a crime or wrong-doing is committed there is a victim, an offender and the community. All are affected, restoration happens when the affected members reconcile or right the wrong. The three persons embracing represent the victim, offender and the community.

 

What is the purpose of the committee?

  1. PROMOTE and maintain social peace and harmony in our community of Nemaska.
  2. HELP administer justice using culturally adapted approaches, which put emphasis on healing individuals, families and the community, and that deal with the underlying causes of problems in the community rather than just the symptoms.
  3. OFFER alternatives or complements to the mainstream Justice System while including the people that have been affected by the crime or conflict.
  4. ENCOURAGE a social reaction to crime and conflicts that favors accountability, reparation, restoring balance and the re-establishment of relations among affected individuals.
  5. PROMOTE understanding and respect of laws, socially acceptable behaviours, cultural values, and traditions.
