Our peacebuilding program works to create more peace-filled spaces for MCCS connected communities and individuals where people will use tools to address past harms (increase trauma understanding), seek positive ways forward (participate in restorative justice opportunities), and create hope-filled relationships (engage in reconciliation action). We believe that these aspects are foundational in healing historical harms, addressing systemic injustices, breaking cycles of violence and building resilience.

Our peacebuilding program:

  • provides trainings on trauma awareness
  • equips constituency groups to respond to trauma and prevent future harm
  • facilitates healing for offenders by linking past harms to root causes of conflict with the law
  • promotes understanding of restorative justice principles and practices
  • promotes awareness about the realities of the criminal justice system
  • resources restorative justice organizations in the province, including promoting volunteer opportunities among our constituency
  • supports the reconciliation movement in Saskatchewan by:
    • producing the podcast “Reconcile: Everyday conversations.”
    • facilitating the KAIROS Blanket Exercise
    • active participation in Reconciliation Saskatoon and its education subcommittee
