Indigenous Case Worker

The purpose is to provide casework, programs, intervention and support with a focus on culturally appropriate services to Indigenous clients before, during and after the Court process. The Indigenous Case Worker makes referrals to other community services, liaises with related community agencies, and provides training on diversity and other related areas.

What services can an Indigenous Case Worker provide?

The Indigenous Case Worker offers programs and one to one interventions for youth and adults to assist and support individuals and families experiencing significant personal difficulties associated with criminal behaviour, and high risk behaviour directed toward self or others.

The Indigenous Case Worker also assists clients in participating in cultural healing practices by bringing in Elders to conduct smudging ceremonies, cultural counselling, Healing Circles and Spiritual Healing.

What is the referral process?

Referrals are accepted for youth and adults who are involved in the criminal justice system as a result of committing a criminal offence.  These individuals are referred by Correctional Facilities, Probation Services, and Youth Justice Services.  A person may self-refer to the program and referrals are accepted from other community agencies.

Is there a fee?

There is no fee for these services.
