Connection to community is essential for urban Inuit to thrive, and Tungasuvvingat Inuit is that primary connection. It is important to offer programming and services that are easy to access, community-based and culturally relevant. We invite you to review the many programs available free of charge for urban Inuit in Ontario and contact us for more information on accessing these services.
Pisiksik Justice Department (PJD)
PJD provides support for Inuit clients in contact with the criminal justice system, those at high risk of entering the system, or have previously had contact with the system.
Restorative Justice Program (RJ)
Restorative Justice is a system of criminal justice that focuses on the rehabilitation and not punishment of offenders through reconciliation and healing with victims and the community. We are working to address the lack of recognized Inuit specific Restorative Justice programming and diversion within Ottawa/Ontario. Through our depth of programing, and resources, Inuit youth and adults, within the community that have come in conflict with the law, will have the potential to be diverted from the Criminal Justice System both pre-and post charge.
The Gladue Program
TI’s Gladue Program ensures that Inuit offenders have the opportunity to present their story to the courts of how they became involved in the criminal justice system following a guilty plea or a finding of guilt.
