Community Justice Society offers extensive programming options to clients within the HRM in a safe, respectful and empowering atmosphere. We have adopted an approach, based on the restorative justice principles, designed to respond to wrongdoing and conflict. Many of the programs are offered in partnership with other community-based organizations who are interested in the welfare of youth in the HRM.

Many of our programs are carried out in a “talking circle” that focuses on first voice. They are meant to provide support and assistance, and to educate individuals about the value of their communities.
