A new court is scheduled to open in September 2017 in the Wagmatcook Culture and Heritage Centre. This Court will provide service to residents of Wagmatcook, Waycobah and their surrounding communities in Victoria County. The Court will provide services appropriate to the Mi’kmaq culture, including a wellness court and Gladue Court as well as routine Provincial Court matters. It is anticipated that sentencing and healing circles will also be held at this Court.
