VARJ’S VISION FOR AN ONGOING RESTORATIVE JUSTICE PROGRAM IN VANCOUVER

In addition to hosting public education events on the concepts, values and objectives underlying restorative practices, VARJ has also developed a clear vision of how a restorative justice program would look in terms of sources of referral and case management.  While the following image represents a high level overview that could apply to any restorative justice program, it does not display the shape that RJ program implementation needs to take in response to the unique features of each community.  Accordingly, since its inception, VARJ has been actively engaged in establishing relationships with other like-minded community organizations, representatives of local and provincial government, every sector within the criminal justice system and restorative justice practitioners – with a view to securing the necessary support to establish a Restorative Justice Program for Vancouver.
