Chaired by Willie Littlechild, the Commission on First Nations and Métis Peoples and Justice Reform was established 15 November 2001 with a broad mandate to survey the relations in Saskatchewan between First Nations and Métis Peoples and the justice system. This mandate from Saskatchewan's minister of justice and Aboriginal affairs included the total picture: policing, courts, prosecutions, alternative measures, access to legal counsel, corrections (including community corrections), youth justice, community justice processes, and victim services. The goal of the commision was to identify efficient, effective, and financially responsible reforms to the justice system. (excerpt)
