Project Description: This project is designed to examine the patterns of crime and the delivery of justice services to Inuit communities in the Baffin Region, N.W.T. There has been identified a need to develop alternative, community-based justice programs and services that may serve to reduce the dependency of communities and which may be more effective in addressing the needs of Inuit communities, victims, and offenders.
