Saanich Community Justice Initiatives
Saanich Community Justice is an innovative out of court process to deal with an offence. It is an alternative to the traditional justice system and is based on Restorative Justice practices. The Community Justice Initiative Program provides an opportunity for offenders, victims and affected community members to meet to discuss the impact of the offender's actions and to try to agree on a resolution to repair the harm.
