PROJECT UPDATE: Restorative Justice and Gender-Based Violence in BC: Revisiting the Conversation

In 2020, Justice Canada contracted the Ending Violence Association of BC and Just Outcomes Inc. to undertake the project Restorative Justice and Gender-Based Violence in BC: Revisiting the Conversation. The project involved the development of a discussion paper, a four-part virtual dialogue with 25 participants from the gender-based violence and restorative justice communities, and Indigenous and immigrant leaders, and a summary report. The discussion paper and summary report are now available through the Victims of Crime Research Digest No. 14, published by Justice Canada in November 2021. (You can also download the PDF here).
