The federal government is investing around $1 million in a University of Regina initiative to address the high number of Indigenous people in the criminal justice system.

The funding, through the Indigenous Community Corrections Initiative, aims at developing alternatives to custody, along with reintegrating Indigenous offenders.

Minister of Public Safety and Emergency Preparedness Ralph Goodale made the $978,272 funding announcement at the U of R on Friday morning.

“Our Government is working to help reverse Indigenous over-representation in Canada’s criminal justice system by supporting culturally-relevant interventions by community-based organizations,” Goodale said in a news release. “This partnership with the University of Regina will increase FASD-affected Indigenous offenders’ level of engagement and understanding of the system and of their disability, helping reduce their contact with the criminal justice system and make our communities safer.”
