The Church Council on Justice and Corrections (CCJC) is a Canadian coalition of faith-based individuals and churches advocating for a more humane way to practice criminal justice. In collaboration with the Correctional Service of Canada, the CCJC conducted three “Connecting the Dots‿ forums in the following locations: Sault Ste. Marie, Ontario; Lethbridge, Alberta; and Prince George, British Columbia. Each meeting consisted of a two-day, community-based Healing Justice Education Forum. By bringing together faith and community representatives, including criminal justice professionals, the forums sought to educate and engage participants in terms of the relevance and application of restorative and community-strengthening tools towards healthier and safer places to live. This document presents a final report on the forums. Among other contents, it contains testimonials from participants; the origin, purpose, and structure of the forums; local partners and attendees; evaluation of the goals of the project; and networking and new initiative results of the forums.
