$72,000 will be given over the next three years to the Yeqox Nilin Justice Society.
The money will be through the Indigenous Resilience and Recovery Grant, that 22 other Indigenous-led non-profit organizations are apart of.
“We applied through NRT, that’s the New Relationship Trust. It’s a three year grant that we were successful in.” says Violet Fuller, Executive Director.
“This will allow us to hire a new person to help us provide the services within our organization.”
The organization offers restorative justice with Indigenous court once a month.
As for when the funding will come into effect, Fuller said that they look to make the hire today (February 7th), with work hopefully beginning next Monday.
