Take Referrals for Serious Offences

Victim Involvement
Victim involvement is preferred but not mandates. Offender only processes are possible if the victim does not wish to participate in any form.

General administrative process for handling referrals
Referrals can be discussed prior to being officially made with the program.

What forms are required?
MRJC has forms for receiving referrals

General info re: time to adjudicate RJ process
This is often case dependent, and can be discussed with referring party. Duration for completion must take into account the need for trauma informed care for victims and other participants.

Case closure reporting
We have follow-up questionnaires for all participants (victim, offender, crown, defense, participants). We require consent from participants post conference to share the questionnaires, with referring parties. If no consent is given, we will provide referrer with a debrief from a facilitator’s perspective.

Capacity to take on additional referrals
 We also do follow up phone calls for a debrief discussion. We provide referrers with detailed information about outcomes and satisfaction levels

A combination of paid staff and volunteers are used. More serious charges are dealth with through experienced contractors.

Facilitator Training Requirements
We require circle experience and training. We also consider expertise in areas that are appropriate to the case i.e., Elders, if we had an Indigenous client, we would attempt to contract with an Indigenous facilitator. After we pre-meet with the clients, we assess what type of facilitator would be most appropriate for the file. There are some important considerations to be made. Clients need to feel that they are in an environment in which they feel safe; that victims needs are considered; that the victims needs are both reasonable and achievable; that participants have faith that their facilitator can manage the process and that they will get meaningful justice.
