Tla'min Nation Justice Committee
A First Nations community has a ‘justice committee’ which brings together local groups and services to build on social services.
They [Tla’min Nation] have what’s called a justice committee out there [on Tla’min Nation] that I was involved in for years, quarterly meetings, it brings all of the sort of justice related services from forestry, enforcement, to medical to everybody together, that it really connects everybody so that there’s more of a sense of an integrated community in terms of social service, which really has, there’s always a component of social service to health provision, as well. That’s been my experience anyway. I mean it’s usually about a third of what you’re doing is sort of social work in a way.
