  • We believe that the public deserves affordable, effective alternatives to the criminal justice system. 
  • We believe in honouring the voice of victims, empowering them to take part in the resolution of harm and get the answers they need to go forward in a positive way.
  • We believe in holding offenders accountable and giving them the opportunity to make amends and restore their place as contributing members of the community. 
  • We believe in strengthening our communities by restoring people in the aftermath of harm.  

Restorative Justice Facilitation 
  • Have you been the victim of a crime or harm and want an alternative to calling the police? 
  • Have you done harm and want to make amends?
  • Do you know someone who needs justice options?
Full Circle partners with local agencies to provide restorative justice facilitation on a sliding scale, making justice affordable to all people. Contact our office for a free consultation.

Restorative Justice Workshops
Would your agency or interest group like to learn more about restorative justice? Contact our office to discuss your group's interests: we are happy to tailor our presentation to your needs.

Program Development
Are you interested in developing a restorative practices program where you work? Many schools and agencies in our county are now working to provide restorative justice services to their populations. There is no need to "re-invent the wheel"; FULL CIRCLE can help. From policy and procedure materials, best practices and data management to ideas on supporting new facilitators, we act as a resource to emerging new programs.

Circle Participants in Renfrew County said:

“It was good for the young people (people who did harm) to hear how the victims felt. I don’t think the court system would have given either side this chance.”

“I feel this has been a really terrific process, and… a much more effective way to deal with misdemeanors than through the courts. It supports and involves the communities personally, helping prevent future unacceptable behaviour without labelling…”

“I was very happy to notice a real sense of empathy and feeling of community belonging that occurred by the end of this process—an ideal to strive for!”

“I am truly grateful to have been involved”

“I now understand how much my actions hurt people, and I am really sorry. I won’t do anything like this again.”

“This is an amazing system—teaches kids/parents/victims about all sides and all come away content and have learned and grown. It’s awesome. Great idea, great job.”
