Contact:
Sheila Feehan
Committee Coordinator

Telephone: (780) 782-4401
This program serves youth between the ages of 12-18 and others who may be older but committed an offence while under the age of 18. We work with youth from any and all communities, Indigenous, and non-Indigenous. Youth are referred either directly by police or by the crown prosecutor’s office. The latter can determine a pre-charge referral as well as post charge referral for any first or second offence. Our committees have held circles with youth charged with serious matters (assault, robbery, fraud, mischief causing significant damages, sexual matters involving inappropriate touching and/or cyber bullying) as well as summary conviction matters such as shoplifting and other theft related matters. We have also worked with youth charged with drug related matters. When a youth is referred to the program, the committee coordinator will reach out to youth, parents/caregivers and victim(s), as well as the arresting officer if available. All are invited to participate in a Restorative Justice Circle, facilitated by a volunteer. Should the victim be hesitant to participate, they can share a victim impact statement which would read circle by a volunteer victim advocate. If victim’s chose to participate they are invited to bring a support person. Should one not be available, a third volunteer acts as their support person, meeting with them prior to the circle and advising as to their role, describing the circle process, and discussing the victim’s expectations and hopes as a result of participation. Circles use a scripted format and a talking piece. All volunteers are trained in the circle process (which is lengthy and involves working through training manuals, with role plays and mock circles) prior to participation. After much discussion and sharing, all participants, including the youth, are asked how the youth can make things right with the victim(s) and repay society in general. Sanctions are determined on the basis of consensus and the abilities and strengths of the youth involved. Youth are provided a follow up volunteer who acts as a mentor in that weekly contact is maintained and any difficulties and/or challenges faced by the youth in respect to completion of their contract are addressed and worked through. Youth have approximately three months to complete the agreed upon sanctions. Should they need further time, an extension is requested and always granted by the Court.

If victim’s chose to participate they are invited to bring a support person. Should one not be available, a third volunteer acts as their support person, meeting with them prior to the circle and advising as to their role, describing the circle process, and discussing the victim’s expectations and hopes as a result of participation. Circles use a scripted format and a talking piece. All volunteers are trained in the circle process (which is lengthy and involves working through training manuals, with role plays and mock circles) prior to participation. After much discussion and sharing, all participants, including the youth, are asked how the youth can make things right with the victim(s) and repay society in general. Sanctions are determined on the basis of consensus and the abilities and strengths of the youth involved. Youth are provided a follow up volunteer who acts as a mentor in that weekly contact is maintained and any difficulties and/or challenges faced by the youth in respect to completion of their contract are addressed and worked through. Youth have approximately three months to complete the agreed upon sanctions. Should they need further time, an extension is requested and always granted by the Court.

Telephone: (780) 246-7921
This program serves youth between the ages of 12-18 and others who may be older but committed an offence while under the age of 18. We work with youth from any and all communities, Indigenous, and non-Indigenous. Youth are referred either directly by police or by the crown prosecutor’s office. The latter can determine a pre-charge referral as well as post charge referral for any first or second offence. Our committees have held circles with youth charged with serious matters (assault, robbery, fraud, mischief causing significant damages, sexual matters involving inappropriate touching and/or cyber bullying) as well as summary conviction matters such as shoplifting and other theft related matters. We have also worked with youth charged with drug related matters. When a youth is referred to the program, the committee coordinator will reach out to youth, parents/caregivers and victim(s), as well as the arresting officer if available. All are invited to participate in a Restorative Justice Circle, facilitated by a volunteer. Should the victim be hesitant to participate, they can share a victim impact statement which would read circle by a volunteer victim advocate. If victim’s chose to participate they are invited to bring a support person.

Telephone: (250) 724-4174
The Alberni Valley Restorative Justice Society offers community justice forums, which provide a safe environment for both sides to express how they feel and how the crime has affected each one. Forums are powerful learning experiences because they force offenders to face the consequences of their behaviour. Eligible offenders include persons that committed a minor offence under the Criminal Code (e.g. theft, possession of stolen property, fraud, causing a disturbance, mischief, and vandalism). The accused must admit to the offence and be willing to accept responsibility for the harm done. The accused must be willing to participate in a face-to-face community justice forum and comply with the signed forum agreement as an alternative to going to court. The restorative justice process is available to those offenders recommended by the RCMP to the program.

The Chehalis Community Accountability Program as designed by the Chehalis Restorative Justice Committee is based on philosophies and structures of other successful alternative justice programs. In the restorative approach, a crime is seen as a violation of people and community relationships. The violation is seen to create an obligation to make things right. The obligation is defined by mutual agreement between the victim, the offender and others affected by the unlawful actions or unacceptable behaviour. Community relationships are re-balanced by offering support to victims and offenders, by giving victims a voice in responding to offences and by giving offenders the impetus and opportunity to be accountable and make amends to their victims. This process is led by a resolution conference facilitator who leads all parties in safe and meaningful communication.

Victim rights and needs are recognized and crime is recognized as having an interpersonal connection. The response is focused on the harmful consequences of the offender's behaviours not their character and debts and liability to the victim are recognized in the solution.

In New Brunswick, Diversion can be considered for all eligible cases (youth and adult). Offences eligible for Diversion – and thereby Restorative Justice – are outlined in New Brunswick’s Youth and Adult Diversion Schedule of Offences. Restorative processes are then used at the discretion of Diversion Coordinators and RCMP Community Program Officers (CPOs). Accordingly, Diversion Coordinators and CPOs assume responsibility for the monitoring of the agreement for completion – but must use trained, third-party volunteer facilitators available in their respective communities to serve as facilitators of these processes in order to maintain neutrality.

Collaborative Justice Program: Restorative Justice Ottawa offers restorative justice programing to both adults and youth who have typically committed a serious offence. If the accused meets the requirements prescribed by a caseworker, and the victim is interested in participating, the process of rehabilitation can begin. When meetings are deemed appropriate, it is often in the format of a Circle Conference. If a resolution agreement is reached, it is sent back to the court for consideration during the sentencing stage.

LCCJP accepts referrals from the Lanark County OPP, Smiths Falls Police Services, and the Crown Attorney’s office for both youth and young adult/adult offenders. There are approximately 30 fully trained volunteers who facilitate the Restorative Justice Forum process, where we bring together the accused, the victim, their respective support people and the community to have a facilitated conversation that addresses what happened, who was impacted and how and how to make things right. It is a community response to crime. LCCJ also regularly provides other restorative practices services.

Restorative Youth Circles is a youth court diversion program in Toronto offered through Peacebuilders Canada. The program occurs in two stages: the first stage is known as Leaders of Tomorrow (“LOT”) Peer to Peer Circles where Peacebuilders’ staff lead young people in weekly discussions about ethics, integrity, honesty and responsibility. The second stage known as Individualized Circles, consists of two assigned volunteers meeting with the youth offender in weekly Circles. As trust and rapport is built, the incident is discussed as well as the circumstances that lead to the offence and ways to make amends. When the youth has completed the program, the volunteers and staff draft a report that outlines the steps taken by the young person to both take responsibility and make amends which is sent back to the youth’s counsel and any referring agencies. The program has diverted over 1300 youth from the criminal justice system.

Deshashondre our Court Support Program – helps individuals involved in all five courts (Criminal, Mental Health, Drug, Youth, and Family) of the justice system. We offer advocacy and mediation to ensure First Peoples can better access the justice system and have a range of other supports to assist those wanting to start their healing journey. The traditional justice systems of our First Peoples communities involved more holistic processes that focused on looking to resolve the root of the offences instead of direct punishments. In their healing journey, individuals are asked to give back to the communities and/or any parties they have offended, participate in circle processes to help understand the context of the offense, share feelings and thoughts, create a plan of action to start their healing journey, develop a sense of belonging in their community, and participate in addictions or other necessary counselling. This process is not an easy way out. The individual must take full responsibility for their actions, and in some cases, even have to reckon with those they have wronged face-to-face. This process can allow the victim to have closure, ask the questions they need to get a fuller understanding of their situation, receive a real, heart-felt apology and, in many cases, the assurances they need to see that the person has truly changed and has started on a new path.

The Indigenous Justice Program (IJP) delivers alternative justice measures to all Aboriginal people in the province of Prince Edward Island working with communities and service organizations to create a system that provides offenders with access to traditional justice methods, such as sentencing circles. The Program also works to provide support for people going through the Justice system as requested, helping with understanding the process, advocacy, and referrals to other services as needed on and off reserve. The IJP also runs the Gladue Report program by ensuring all court requested Gladue reports are written and submitted to the Court in a timely manner. Our case manager provides Gladue After-Care services assisting with referrals and follow-up to recommendations outlined within the report. We work collaboratively with the provincial system assisting with providing access to culturally appropriate supports and services.
