Community Justice Initiatives (CJI) is a non-profit organization known world-wide for starting the first modern Restorative Justice program.
Restorative Justice is a way of addressing conflict and crime that engages the person who caused the harm, people who were affected by the harm, and the community.
During our 40+ year history, we have continuously responded to community needs by creatively, and innovatively applying restorative justice principles to new problems. We believe the only limit to the power of restorative justice is the capacity of the human heart to change and grow.
We provide conflict resolution services, support for people impacted by sexual trauma, assistance for families involved with child protection, and reintegration support for women and youth returning to the community from prison or custody.
Our restorative justice programs are offered in Cambridge, Kitchener, Waterloo, Guelph, and the rest of the Waterloo Region and Wellington County in Ontario, Canada. Through research, speaking opportunities, and written resources our influence is global.
