What is Restorative Justice?
Restorative Justice is simply a different way of thinking about a crime and our response to deal with law breakers. We often view crime as a crime against the crown and when the law is broken it is the Crowns responsibility to deals with the offenders. Under the Restorative Justice Model, crime is viewed as an offence that breaks the relationship between individuals. They feel that First Nations and communities are in the better position to deal with the offenders than the Crown.
