Tontakaierine Tyendinaga Justice Circle
The Tontakaierine (It has become right again) Tyendinaga Justice Circle is an alternative for youth involved with the justice system. The program brings together victims, offenders, and families or advocates in a safe environment to discuss the offence and its effects, and then jointly decide on the best way to right the wrong. This Indigenous conflict resolution process validates victims, offenders, families, and advocates, and creates healing. The program receives referrals from police, crown attorneys, local schools, and community agencies. We are expanding Tontakaierine to offer more culturally-relevant mentorship, youth events, and ongoing support for families, and are looking at delivering training to professionals in the youth services field.

The Adult Diversion Program provides a restorative justice option for those who are eligible. Restorative justice seeks solutions which are visible, accountable and accessible to accused persons, victims and the community while repairing, to the extent possible, the harm caused by the offence and restoring the peace in our community.
