Restorative Justice is a process involving those who have a stake in a specific offence, including the alleged offender, with the aim of collectively addressing the harm done and the remedies and obligations needed to heal and put things right as much as possible. We’ll review the history of Restorative Justice in Canada, the influence of First Nations tradition, and learn about its use in our Sunshine Coast community and schools. We’ll examine the impact, results, and benefits for both offender and victim of a crime, and consider how the Restorative Justice process can help people have those difficult conversations that may heal conflict and dispute.
