CDRJS offers Restorative Justice alternatives to formal court practices used to address crime.  It is not an alternative to formal court process or in competition with formal court processes.  Files that are referred to CDRJS from the RCMP and Crown are those in which:

a) the offender is taking responsibility for their actions and is willing to address the harm done to others,

b) the severity of crime is deemed appropriate for a restorative process. Typical referrals for restorative processes are those for which the offender may receive fines and community service if the referral would proceed through court.

The identity and agreements reached as the result of a restorative justice process are confidential.  The following data discussion is based on non-identifying information only.
