Restoring the Balance
The Restoring the Balance program will build on the successes that have been achieved throughout the first year of the project. The
two Counsellor's (female and male) will continue to provide essential
services and programs to the growing client base of women and men who
are Survivors, families of Survivors and descendants of Survivors.
The program will have a Project Team consisting of 6 members: an Elder in Residence, Executive director and four counsellors. This team differs from the first year of the program as it represents the need for two additional counsellors. The
first Counsellor will have a focus on 'Restorative Justice,' and the
second Counsellor will have a focus on 'Rebuilding the Family'.
increase of the Team will strengthen the services by providing specific
programming for the Survivors, families and descendants who reside
within the catchment area.
focus on Restorative Justice will provide services to inmates and
families, and victims of those incarcerated in prisons within the
catchment area. This position will promote the
philosophy of restorative justice by assisting, where requested, the
victims and offenders to reconcile the abuses that have occurred as a
result of the Legacy. This Counsellor will contribute to the process of reconciliation between Aboriginal Peoples and Canada.
The focus on Rebuilding the Family will provide essential counselling and develop specific
programs for families that have been devastated by the child welfare system.
This focus is
premised by the fact that the residential school system is one of the leading factors which
has caused the breakdown of Aboriginal families, communities and nations. This Counsellor
will assist those families in the rebuilding of the relationships with their family and their community.
