This is a revised inventory of Aboriginal community/restorative justice programs in
Ontario. The information was obtained by reviewing existing sources, through a survey
of Joint Management Committee members, by reviewing websites and by interviewing
new contacts. We are using a very broad definition of community/restorative justice. It
includes any programs that provide an alternative or community approach at the precharge
phase, post-charge phase, pre-sentence phase and/or at the point that the person
re-enters the community after incarceration. It also includes anything related to justice
that is different from the usual charging, trial, sentencing or release process. It could be a
mainstream program with substantial Aboriginal involvement or a program that is strictly
Aboriginal. It could be a formal program or an informal one that consists primarily of
volunteers. It could also include community education and awareness programs. (excerpt)
