The Kimmirut Uqaujiigiaqtiit Justice Committee is looking for members.

Justice committees in Nunavut use a community-based justice approach to assist victims of crime and work with people who have caused harm by committing an offence.

Applicants should have knowledge and experience in restorative justice, and in dealing with social issues. They should also have knowledge of Inuit societal values, and should be sensitive to helping victims and offenders.

Training concerning members’ roles and responsibilities will be provided. Committee members are volunteer positions, with honoraria for attending meetings.

If you are interested, please submit your resumé and criminal record check to Monica Gardner, Kimmirut’s community justice outreach worker. For more information, call 867-939-2001 or email kimmcjow@qiniq.com. You can also contact Lisa Tootoo, community justice specialist, at 867-975-6364 or ltootoo@gov.nu.ca.

Deadline for submission is November 18, 2016.
