Restorative justice is an opportunity to deal with conflicts involving our community members in a more culturally appropriate manner and in a way that is community-focused and community-driven. This program empowers Indigenous people by creating a setting that is easier to relate to than the court system, holding those in conflict more accountable, giving community members the opportunity to be involved in the justice process, and having more meaningful outcomes for those involved.
