The Odawa Native Friendship Centre (ONFC) is a non‐profit organization serving the Indigenous community in the Ottawa‐Carleton Region of Eastern Ontario and surrounding communities. The Vision of ONFC is to ensure a thriving and resilient community. Odawa strives to enhance the quality of life of Indigenous People in the Capital region; to maintain a tradition of community, an ethic of self‐help and development as well as to provide traditional teachings from our elders.
The Indigenous Bail Verification Supervision Program (IBVSP) provides culturally‐based supports to Indigenous persons applying for a Bail release from custody. The IBVSP serves two principals: the presumption of innocence prior to conviction and fair equitable treatment regardless of social and economic background.
The IBVSP will assist in identifying the availability of surety for the Indigenous accused. Provide verified factual information about the Indigenous accused at judicial interim release proceedings that will assist the court in selecting suitable candidates for bail and bail supervision and provide supervision, counselling and referral services while on release from custody.
To be determined based on funding, experience and education.
