Implementation-A blueprint for Returning Justice to the Community Principles of Implementation Food for Thought Moving Forward Implementation Commission Recommendation 1
This Commission
recommends that, the governments of Canada and Saskatchewan, the Federation of Saskatchewan Indian Nations and the Metis Nation – Saskatchewan be required to report to their respective legislatures within six months of the release of this report on what action it has taken relating to the recommendations contained in this report. Mandate Do you think the commission's efforts are going to end in positive results?

Should the federal government share more it's power with the provincial government? Recommendation 2 This Commission recommends that, the governments of Canada and Saskatchewan, the Federation of Saskatchewan Indian Nations and the Métis Nation – Saskatchewan, through discussions at a working group initiated by this Commission, jointly support and establish an Office of the Implementation Commissioner. Recommendation 3 This Commission recommends that the Working Group consisting of the governments of Canada and Saskatchewan, the Federation of Saskatchewan Indian Nations and Metis Nation – Saskatchewan continue to meet regularly following the release of this final report. Their objective should be to lead the way in the creation of an Office of the Implementation Commissioner by October 1, 2005. Recommendation 4 This Commission recommends that the Implementation Commissioner be an independent officer who has inter-jurisdictional authority and will annually report to the respective Legislative Assemblies through an identified mechanism (a standing committee, a council, regional body or commission). Recommendation 5 This Commission recommends that the Implementation Commissioner is appointed, by agreement of the governments of Canada and Saskatchewan, the Federation of Saskatchewan Indian Nations and Métis Nation – Saskatchewan by April 1, 2005. Recommendation 6 This Commission recommends that the governments of Canada and Saskatchewan share the cost of establishing and operating this office with the percentage to be negotiated by these two levels of government. Implementation Office Recommendation 7 This Commission recommends that in addition to the authority to execute a defined mandate, that adequate resources be provided by the governments of Canada and Saskatchewan, to the Implementation Commissioner to establish an office and a process to receive advice from others to ensure that the work of the Implementation Commissioner remains future focused and accountable to the community. • To monitor the implementation of the recommendations of the Justice Reform Commission.
• To advocate for individual and systemic changes that affect the justice system but are not restricted to the justice system.
• To educate and inform leadership and their respective governments on the need for change.
• To exchange information with community about First Nations and Métis issues and concerns.
• To report annually to the public through the respective Legislative Assemblies.
• To effect change, supervise and ensure compliance with the spirit and intent of the Commission’s recommendations regarding the well-being of First Nations and Métis people By: Rae Bruaten, Taylor Nyberg, Michael Senger, & Tatum Wildeman • Inclusivity – the principle of inclusivity requires that all people have the ability to make or influence the decisions that affect their lives.
• Holistic – the principle of holism requires that a healthy balance of a person’s spiritual, emotional, mental and physical aspects be considered. Given that justice is the response to the failure of other institutions and systems in society, the response to justice reform needs to be an integrated one.
• Future focused – the principle of building on the past and looking to the future is important.
• Mutually responsible and beneficial – the principle of participatory democracy provides for meaningful participation in the democratic process between governments and peoples, including First Nations and Métis peoples.
• Shared resources – the principle of sharing requires that the promise of Treaty and Aboriginal rights is respected. Now that the work of the Commission has been completed it is essential that the positive momentum that has been generated and the lines of communication that have been established not be lost. Reform is an ongoing process that must be started immediately. Conclusion Introduction The Commission on First Nations and Métis Peoples and Justice Reform has been very aware of the need to work with all parties to create an implementation vehicle that would succeed this Commission and ensure that the recommendations presented were addressed by the appropriate levels of government and were implemented as quickly as possible. The recommendations include practical steps towards implementing restorative justice in aboriginal communities.
