Alternative Measures and Extrajudicial Sanctions

Both adult and youth programs in Saskatchewan are delivered by community-based non-profit agencies, First Nations, Tribal Councils, and fee-for-service mediators.

Extrajudicial sanctions programs have been operating in Canada since 1983 and in Saskatchewan since 1985. The development of alternative measures/extrajudicial sanctions was influenced by the:
  • Restorative justice movement;
  • Desire of Aboriginal people for a justice system that is responsive to their unique needs; and
  • Realization that communities can sometimes deliver a more effective form of justice than the criminal justice system.
