Aboriginal Community Safety Planning Initiative
The Aboriginal Community Safety Planning Initiative (ACSPI) works to prevent incidents of Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women and Girls (MMIWG), provides a means to enhance accessibility to Restorative Justice programming and responds to the recommendations of the Truth and Reconciliation Commission (TRC).
Support for Indigenous community-led planning and implementation of solutions
The ACSPI supports Indigenous communities in the development of Community Safety Plans (CSPs) which are specific to their unique circumstances. These plans identify community strengths, assets and safety and wellness goals in order for all community members to see themselves involved on a path leading toward a healthier, safer home and community life.
In this uniquely grass-roots approach, Public Safety Canada officials work with communities and continue to support them through the many stages of CSP engagement, development and implementation. However, before the process starts, it is important that the community leaders fully support the concept and demonstrate commitment. Public Safety Canada officials provide information and are available to answer questions but will not actually start the process without having been invited, and having received written endorsement from the community leadership first.
