Community Goals

Improve community safety

Advancing reconciliation

Red Earth Cree Nation and the Government of Canada have signed a co-developed Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) for Advancing Reconciliation. This MOU will guide future discussions on the development of a stand-alone administration of justice agreement. Such an agreement could outline ways Red Earth Cree Nation could assume control of the administration of justice in their community, in accordance with the Constitution Act, 1982

The justice program carries out justice development at the community level. Mihkoskiwakak Nehiyawak signed a Memorandum of Understanding with the Government of Canada. Community members have access to the Alternative Measures Program, Liaison and Integration services, Court services, Youth Cadet Program, and Fine Option Program.

Mihkoskiwakak Nehiyawak is seeking to create its own justice department and establish:

  • Mihkoskiwakak Nehiyawak Court
  • Mihkoskiwakak Nehiyawak Court
  • Mihkoskiwakak Nehiyawak Charter of Rights and Freedoms
  • Laws that are fully enforceable by all levels of government
  • Mihkoskiwakak Nehiyawak Policing Unit
