The Collaborative Justice Project (CJP) is a demonstration project in the Judicial District of Ottawa-Carleton that began in September 1998. The aim of the project is to show how a restorative approach in cases of serious crime can deliver more satisfying justice to victims, offenders, and communities. It is an initiative of the Church Council on Justice and Corrections (CCJC), a Canadian coalition of faith-based individuals and churches advocating for a more humane way to practice criminal justice. Published on March 31, 2002, this is the year end report on the project. It describes what the project is not, cases handled by the project, the process for dealing with a case, case statistics, volunteers, public education, evaluation, and project staff.
