The program will educate the community about the Canadian Justice System and identify community-based activities that will support and rebuild offenders’ connections to community resources and reduce risk factors for recidivism. A Justice Committee will be created and community members will be trained to participate in diversion/alternative measures, community sentencing, mediation and court/community justice programs.
