Long-term Desired Outcome
CFSC’s desired outcomes are:
- The realization of Indigenous Peoples’ Human Rights and reconciliation between Indigenous Peoples and the settler peoples of Canada.
- An enhanced culture of peacebuilding in Canada.
- The reduction of punitive practices in Canada’s criminal justice systems and the realization of the rights of children of incarcerated parents.
We will have achieved this when:
- The United Nations Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples is fully implemented in Canada and the Truth and Reconciliation Commissions’ 94 Calls to Action have been acted upon.
- Peacebuilding projects in Canada have created cultures of peacebuilding that have constructively resolved conflicts.
- There is a reduction in punitive practices (e.g., solitary confinement), an increase in the availability of more restorative alternatives, and the development and implementation of best practices for children of incarcerated parents at all stages (i.e., during arrest, trial, sentencing, incarceration, and reintegration) in Canada.
