Aboriginal Criminal Courtwork Program

The ACCWP is funded by the Ministry of the Attorney General (MAG). The goal of the ACCWP is to assist Aboriginal accused to better understand their rights, options and responsibilities when appearing before the criminal courts. The main objectives of the program are: to facilitate and enhance access to justice; to ensure Aboriginal people involved in the criminal justice system, understand their rights, responsibilities and options; and to ensure that the individual receives fair and legal representation.

The Ontario Aboriginal Courtwork Program

When a person is accused of a crime, or they are dealing with family issues in court, the system can be complicated, confusing and even a frightening experience.

The criminal and family justice systems can be particularly difficult to understand due to language and cultural differences between Aboriginal people and the mainstream system.

In Ontario, the Aboriginal Courtworker Program is available to provide assistance to all Aboriginal people who are in contact with the legal system, whether they are Status, Non-Status, Metis or Inuit.

Aboriginal Courtworkers help their clients receive fair and equitable treatment from the legal system and assist clients in gaining a better understanding of their rights and obligations in the legal system.
