Healing the individual. Healing the community.

The Indigenous Offender Reconciliation Program aims to:

  • Educate communities on the impacts of historic trauma
  • Engage community Elders in the circle process
  • Give voice to community concerns
  • Provide an opportunity for community members to speak to the impact of an offender’s crime(s)
  • Provide an opportunity for offender accountability
  • Provide an opportunity for the offender to earn acceptance back into the community
  • Engage community Elders in the offenders cultural and ceremonial practices

The Indigenous Offender Reconciliation Program:

  • Helps rebuild damaged relationships
  • Creates opportunity for a stable transition to the community
  • Provides a forum for the offender to express healing work being done
  • Individuals may withdraw from the process at any time.
