Can Vancouver become a Restorative City?

Over the past year, your Strathcona Community Policing Centre has been a member of a group of organizations working to bring Restorative Justice and Relational Practices to the city of Vancouver to work in partnership and alongside our traditional justice systems. 

Vancouver, like many cities, faces multiple crises. We desperately require a different way forward.

The Collective is an impressive team of diverse voices and wisdom with representatives from Indigenous-led organizations, service providers including for survivors/victims, youth and seniors, LGBTQ2S+, Vancouver Police Department, BC Community Corrections, Vancouver Board of Parks & Recreation, City Council, business safety committee and more!

We are creating a relational, holistic, decolonizing approach to conflict, harm, healing, justice and peace. 

What would it be like to live in a restorative city?  For more information visit the collective's website -->
