qathet Community Justice (qCJ) is a volunteer-based organization that aims to help restore relationships where conflict or crime has caused harm. Our trained volunteers use a restorative justice model to facilitate dialogue between people in conflict. qCJ services are often used as an alternative to court, or because an issue doesn't fall within the mandate of other services like police and bylaw enforcement. Restorative justice isn't a good fit for every conflict, but our volunteers may be able to help if everyone is willing to talk, we have the capacity, and safety concerns are manageable.

Not all conflicts are resolved through bylaw enforcement. Neighbour disputes can be considered through small claims court, or there’s another option – the province’s Civil Resolution Tribunal. Learn more about Canada’s first online tribunal
