Restorative Justice Week: Nov 20-27

 — Nov. 20, 202220 nov. 2022

Restorative Justice Week runs from November 20 to 27 of this year. Individuals and groups across Canada are encouraged to observe this week in November. The Church Council on Justice and Corrections (CCJC) has resources on Restorative Justice which may be helpful to you.

Restorative justice is founded on a vision of justice that heals and restores. It is based on an understanding that crime is a violation of people and relationships and that justice is served when those most directly involved in an offence are given opportunities to redress the harm caused. It is a non-adversarial, non-retributive approach to justice that emphasizes healing in victims, accountability of offenders, and the involvement of citizens in creating healthier, safer communities. The goal is to reach meaningful, satisfying, and fair outcomes through inclusion, open communication, and truth.
