Community Justice Society- Halifax

You may hear that Community Justice Society is currently involved in collective bargaining with the union that represents some of our employees. We value our employees and the work they do and we remain hopeful that we will come to an agreement soon. 

In the meantime, we continue to make it a priority to help the many youth and adults who need our services.  If you are a client and have questions or concerns, please talk with your caseworker.

In the event there is any change that may affect our ability to offer our services to those in need, we will let you know as soon as possible. We ask that you share this update with friends, family and members of your community.  You can reach us with questions or concerns at or by calling (902) 424-6731.

Community Justice Society is a not-for-profit organization that reports to a Board of Directors.  Community Justice Society in Halifax, Nova Scotia, administers the Restorative Justice Program for the Nova Scotia Department of Justice within Halifax and area. The Province of Nova Scotia provides funding to the CJS Board.  This funding is for the delivery of the Restorative Justice Program throughout the Halifax area.

At its heart, CJS is about community. With our valued team of staff, volunteers and community members, CJS works with people of all ages to provide them with an alternative avenue from the court system to repair the harm caused by their actions.

Thank you for your understanding. 

Community Justice Society.
