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 received project funding for an initiative, â€œToward and Integrated Model of Justice.â€¿ The aim of the initiative is to build on the experience and success of the Collaborative Justice Project. The Collaborative Justice Project, operating out of the court house in Ottawa, applies restorative justice principles and processes in bringing together offenders, victims, families, and support people between an admission of guilt and prior to sentencing. This initiative, as explained in the interim report on progress, is intended to enhance and integrate this restorative justice model by extending it to new uses in the Canadian criminal justice system.
