Restorative Justice Victoria (RJV) is funded almost entirely through private donations and grants. Each year, we receive $2,500 from the provincial government, and any additional public funding must be requested through grant application-writing for specific initiatives. Needless to say, we depend heavily on our local and provincial community members to fund our activities. Each year, the number and complexity of cases we are referred increases as our reputation as an integral part of the criminal justice system grows. 

The work we do heals the harms our families, friends, and neighbours experience due to a crime and violence. We take this very seriously and hate to have to turn referrals down due to lack of funding. If you want to help us with a financial donation, your money will go to decreasing crime, providing healing, and improving safety for all.

There are many ways to make a financial contribution to RJV. Please choose from the options below:

  • Donate online: Go to our CanadaHelps page. You can pay via credit card, Pay Pal, or interac and can make one-time-only or monthly donations. They email a charitable tax receipt to you.
  • In-person or mail: Dropping off or mailing cash or a cheque to our office (1933 Lee Ave, Victoria, BC V8R 4W9). We can issue you a charitable tax receipt.
  • PECSF: If you’re a provincial government employee, you can donate through the PECSF. We’re listed under our legal name (Victoria Restorative Justice Society), our ID# is DC1701, and our charitable org. # is 828761940RR0001
  • Sponsorship: If you are a business, you can become a sponsor for our annual Restore Your Sole fundraising event, which takes place in the fall. Please contact us directly for details

Current RJ Victoria Needs:

While financial contributions to support our staffing & project goals are critical to our operations and take precedence wherever possible, we also are often in need of smaller office equipment & other things. Please look at our current list of needs and consider making a contribution. Every contribution goes a long way. We thank you for your consideration.

RJV & Covid-19

We are continuing to offer our restorative justice services during this time. We are also taking new referrals.

Depending on the circumstances and the comfort levels of everyone involved, we are working with clients through online conferencing, phone meetings, and/or in-person. We are following all the BC Government guidelines to minimize risk during in-person meetings, and can explore various options with clients on a case-by-case basis. Our staff are continuing to work at home and in the office. If you would like to contact us, email us at or leave a voicemail at (250) 383-5801 and we will get back to you as soon as we can.

We are currently enrolled in the Canadian Red Cross Stop the Spread program which allows us to administer COVID-19 tests to staff, volunteers and clients upon request on a voluntary basis. Clients wishing to take advantage of this service may discuss this option with an RJV team member.

The safety of our clients, volunteers, and staff is paramount. Please don’t hesitate to contact us if you have any questions about how your case might proceed with our health and safety processes in place. We hope that you are doing well during this challenging time.

Our work during the pandemic is supported by the Government of Canada’s Emergency Community Support Fund and the Victoria Foundation’s Community Recovery Program Grant.
