Alberta has announced new funding for its community restorative justice grants, which are available to non-profit organizations which provide restorative justice services and referrals to communities in the province.

Grants of up to $50,000 are available for eligible non-profits, which include community-based organizations, youth justice committees and Indigenous communities. Funding for the grant program is made available through the Victims of Crime and Public Safety Fund.
