New Year and a New Location!


The difficulties associated with Covid-19 and the requirement to maintain appropriate Social Distancing have required our organization to find a new office space with addition room for group work.  Our previous arrangement with Summit Services in Cranbrook will be greatly missed - great people and a very nice work environment.


I approached Jeannie Argatoff and Adam Stenersen with RE/MAX Blue Sky Realty and they kindly provided an excellent space in their building on Baker Street.  It has been a good move for our program and it is reassuring when businesses such as RE/MAX  make such a kind and positive contribution to CDRJS and the community.  Thanks again!


Our new address: 926 Baker Street (upstairs to the right and down the hall)

Civil Forfeiture Grants 2021


CDRJS was awarded a grant from Civil Forfeiture to support training and coordination of Restorative Justice in this region. 

"British Columbia is committed to a restorative justice approach that considers the involvement of victims, offenders and communities in achieving justice and addressing the harm caused by crime."


The Civil Forfeiture Grant program directs some the proceeds of crime back into services and opportunities which will support communities, identified groups who are experiencing or subject to criminal influences and programs such as CDRJS who work to support community engagement in community difficulties associated with crime. 


We are grateful for the recognition and the financial support.  We will offer training again when the Covid restrictions allow us to travel and hold training groups.
