Restorative Justice

The Powell River Region’s experience with formal Restorative Justice processes began 14 years ago on Texada Island. Since then, it has consistently adapted and expanded to suit the needs of our community. It began as the Texada Island Restorative Justice Program (TIRJ), and evolved into Texada Island/Powell River RJ (TIPRRJ) in 2010. Upon the request of various Powell River community groups, including the RCMP, an expansion meeting was held in 2017 to see how the program could grow to better suit our community needs, and the decision was made to move the program under the guidance of PREP Community Programs.
