New ways and ideas of bringing people together to work towards healthier and safer communities, diversion sanctions and methods to prevent crime have volunteers on justice committees. The work preformed by the community justice committees is exciting, and as a result our program has fast become a model that is studied and adapted by other territories and provinces.

The future of the Community Justice program is bright, and together through the sharing of ideas, thoughts, methods and best practices I am confident our approach will remain as a strong alternative to the formal justice.

Chipewyan Language Working Group

The Chipewyan Language Advisory Committee is holding a meeting at the Lou Menez Chipewyan Language Resource Centre on December 17, 2003 @ 7:00pm. All advisory committee members are invited to attend.

Language is a way of life and a gift from the Creator to preserve for future generations. Our Dene language is still strong in the community amongst the adults and elders and needs to be taught to the youth. We need to make learning of the Dene language fun and interesting, so we can gain the interest of our youth and their energetic minds.

We as the Student Council appreciate what is being done for the language in our community. We encourage the Chipewyan Language Working Group to continue making a difference in peoples. lives with the knowledge of our most precious resource our Dene Culture. With the knowledge of our ancestors we are sure to make clear and respectful decisions of the future of our Dene Culture and for the future of the youth.
