CPCIL Jurisdictional Scan

Restorative justice in parks and protected areas. 

We are completing a jurisdictional scan regarding how restorative justice is applied in park jurisdictions across Canada. This work is being undertaken by a small team of park employees from different Canadian park jurisdictions who recently participated in a park leaders program offered through the Canadian Parks Collective for Innovation and Leadership (CPCIL).

Justice Canada defines restorative justice as an approach to justice that focuses on addressing the harm caused by crime while holding the offender responsible for their actions, by providing an opportunity for the parties directly affected by the crime – victims, offenders and communities – to identify and address their needs in the aftermath of a crime. Restorative justice processes can be ordered through court or can occur outside the court system.

Our goal is to complete the scan, along with some case studies, and then share this information with the parks community on the CPCIL web site at cpcil.ca. Your responses will assist us in determining suitable case studies, training opportunities, and other resources to share. 

We would appreciate responses by September 12th, 2019. If you require clarification or wish to discuss the project further please contact manager@cpcil.ca or any member of this capstone team. Sincerely, Spring 2019 Capstone Team E
