NCSA is proud to celebrate our 50th year of social justice services!

Established in 1970, NCSA started by providing courtworker assistance to Indigenous people in conflict with the law across Alberta because they often feel alienated by legal and court procedures. Over the last 50 years, NCSA has evolved to meet the needs of Indigenous people for fair and equitable access to justice through our family and youth programs, family, youth and criminal courtworker programs, two correctional institutions for Indigenous offenders, and BearPaw Legal Education and Media. NCSA is a leader in the development of restorative justice models and practices for Indigenous people, by Indigenous people in Alberta.
