The Community Justice Forum  Training Process (CJF) was developed by the RCMP to adequately provide individuals with the background and practical experience necessary to facilitate restorative justice forums.

In addition to the initial 20 hour training program that is provided by CDRJS, successful facilitators are mentored through a process of 5 formal referrals.  During each of the forums in the mentorship phase, the applicant takes on increased responsibility and is provided with referrals with increased complexity.

After the initial training and guided experience, a formal recommendation is forwarded by CDRJS to the Restorative Justice Program Director, RCMP “E” Division/Government of Canada – Crime Prevention Services.

If you are interested in becoming a member of CDRJS and contributing to the community in this manner, please contact Doug McPhee, Program Coordinator.
