Welcome to Restorative Justice.
The Restorative Justice guide teaches that offenders can be held responsible for their actions, without the need of incarceration. Law enforcement professionals can foster meaningful engagement and accountability by providing the offender an opportunity for healing, reparation, and reintegration. The course is anticipated to promote positive outcomes for both communities and the criminal justice system in Canada by reducing incarceration and recidivism, while contributing to the reduction of the over-representation of both Indigenous youth and adults in custody over the next decade.
