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. The CCJC has undertaken a number of initiatives that give prominence to victim-related issues. This paper reports on six of those initiatives: a report on the Collaborative Justice Project at a victims of crime conference in Ontario; production of reflection sheets on restorative justice; participation in a Living Justice conference on Godâ€™s justice in relation to the question of healing or retribution; the Collaborative Justice Project operating out of the Ottawa courthouse; a focus on victimsâ€™ stories at a CCJC annual meeting; and identification of benchmarks for satisfying justice.
