Restorative Justice Victoria (RJV) is a community-based organization designed to improve community life for all by dealing with the harms created by crime and violence. Our work is possible because of the cohesive relationships we have with our partners. We are grateful for everyone who becomes involved with RJV and who supports restorative justice. Please read more about how these relationships work.

Allowing all parties involved a chance to speak about the situation, to clear the air, apologize for wrong doings, and heal the hurt has been incredibly helpful and necessary. Now, after the meeting, a bad situation is turned into a wonderful opportunity to get involved with community and take positive actions to better other people’s lives.

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.
