This research explores the realities of the RCMP initiating the collaborative development of a restorative justice template with a focus on First Nation Communities. A multi-method action approach was utilised to engage the targeted participants.A multi-method approach was the most appropiate process due to the geographic separation of the researcher and the participants.The research was designed to ascertain the viability of developing a restorative justice template for the implementation of a restorative justice comittee within the First Nations Communities. The needs to have a segment for community specific sanctions were also addressed. The findings of this research project indicate the overwhelming support for such an initiative.With the Aboriginal community moving toward self-government and the RCMP devoting specific initiatives to the Aboriginal community, this research should develop roots very quickly as it moves toward implementation.
