Kwanlin Dun Justice Department

Our work

Programming/ restorative justice initiatives

We develop and provide programs and services to KDFN citizens and families who are in conflict with the law or in need of support from victim services, probation, or court related services.

Building on past success, we will be developing restorative justice options for dealing with child welfare, victim services, policing, courts or corrections related issues.

Child Welfare

Justice is working on interim arrangements for child welfare service delivery within KDFN community. We are also further developing our capacity and programs for safe and collaborative delivery of child welfare related prevention, advocacy and intervention related services. We will be setting standards for cultural safety and cultural competence of individuals working within the system. Our intention is to develop a plan with partners to work towards taking down authority for child welfare.

Administration of Justice

KDFN is in exploratory discussions with Canada and Yukon on taking over the administration of justice. Our work includes doing visioning with the community, researching traditional KDFN justice practices and other justice projects in other jurisdictions, and scoping out KDFN participation in the administration of justice. This work will prepare KDFN to move into negotiations.

Policing Review

KDFN worked with other First Nations and government partners to complete the Yukon Policing Review. We will be working on follow-up implementation with the goal of contributing to developing an improved policing service for KDFN.
