Get Involved


The 2017 National Restorative Justice Symposium co-hosted by the Church Council on Justice and Corrections and the Collaborative Justice Program, will be held on traditional unceded territory of the Algonquin Anishnaabeg people, in Ottawa, ON from November 19th-21st, 2017.

This year's theme for the National Restorative Justice Symposium is Global Innovation - Local (R)Evolution. This theme draws attention to both global and local contributions to the restorative justice movement which has grown by leaps and bounds in many countries, including our own. Restorative justice is constantly evolving and improving how the world deals with harm and conflict, coming into greater use in many fields. Now is the time to come together to share our innovations and to use this knowledge to push us into the next (r)evolution of restorative justice in Canada. #OurTimeisNow

The Symposium will feature international keynote presentations from New Zealand’s Hayley MacKenzie and the United Kingdom’s Christopher Straker, and the program is filling up with excellent workshop and training sessions, such as:

• Indigenous Ways of Knowing: “Sacred Circles”
• Working from a Victim-Centered Perspective: What, Why, and How?
• The F Word: Exploring Forgiveness
• Understanding Deep-Rooted Conflict, Structures of Violence & Power Imbalances
• Circle Up! Using Circles and other Restorative Practices with Youth in Community and Educational Settings
• Restorative Parenting: It’s Complicated

Registration for the Symposium is now open! Sign up now and save by taking advantage of early bird pricing from now until October 1st, 2017. Registration and further details about the Symposium can be found at nrjs2017snjr.com
