About Us

Native Para-Judicial Services of Quebec (SPAQ) is a non-political, not-for-profit organization. It was created following negotiations between Quebec First Nations and the Quebec Department of Justice.  Native Para-Judicial Services of Quebec assists native people in matters relating to the criminal justice system. It is wholly committed to developing alternatives to the euro-Canadian justice system in order to better meet the needs of native communities in the province of Quebec.

Nine Nations and provincial Associations make up our Organization and sit on its Board of Directors.
