iti court s

The Cree communities of Eeyou-Istchee receive itinerant court services within the Abitibi judicial district of Quebec. In all communities, itinerant courts can hear cases under the Court of Quebec including Criminal and Penal Division, Civil Division, Youth Division and Small Claims. In addition, all the the Cree communities can host cases under the Quebec Superior Court including for civil, family and criminal matters. Youth Protection has a number of hearings each year as well through our state-of-the-art video conferencing equipment. The Cree Justice system and facilities are designed as a venue that can host any type of courts or judicial or administrative proceedings. The characteristic circular courtrooms represent the Cree value that justice is about community and is an inclusive process.

This section provides the schedule of upcoming court sessions for each community, as well as resources related to court appearances.
