First Nations Court House – Wagmatcook, NS

The design and layout of the courtroom is unique. The Bench is shaped like a circle. This is a powerful symbol in the Indigenous community and represents the aboriginal medicine wheel and the Court’s restorative justice approach, focusing on the Seven Sacred Teachings.

The court building includes holdings cells, so the Court will be able to deal with prisoners on site. It also has video conferencing capabilities and dedicated offices for the Crown, Legal Aid counsel, the judge, the probation officer and the MLSN court worker, as well as interview rooms for defence counsel.
