Nokiiwin Tribal Council (NTC) includes six Nokiiwin communities in the Robinson Superior Treaty Territory of northwest Ontario: Animbiigoo Zaagi’igan Anishinaabek Biinjitiwaabik Zaaging Anishinaabek; Bingwi Neyaashi Anishinaabek; Kiashke Zaaging Anishinaabek; Pic Mobert First Nation; and Fort William First Nation. NTC provides services in the access to justice, health and wellness, community development, and education fields. The agency has hired a full time communications engagement officer to develop a detailed outreach and communication strategy to inform people about NTC’s justice-related services. The communications engagement officer will visit the six communities on a regular basis to provide residents with information about the NTC’s justice department including the work of the community legal worker, restorative justice coordinator, victim support services coordinator, and the half time lawyer who is available to provide legal advice to people with a low income. It is expected that these outreach activities will improve access to justice for First Nations people in the largely rural region.
