Regrets were sent by Valery Napoleon, Law Foundation Chair of Indigenous Justice and Governance at the University of Victoria. Valery’s research focuses on Indigenous legal traditions and cultural ways of responding to harm, ensuring that Indigenous processes are alive and integrated into a pluralist approach.  

The panel discussed a Restorative Approach in legal and legislative spaces, and brought forward diverse perspectives from the legal, medical, and finance sectors on how to move towards a just and restorative health system. The discussion highlighted barriers to a Restorative Approach in the current medical, legal, and regulatory system landscape, and steps that can be taken to move multiple sectors forward in unison to achieve systemic transformation.  The Ministry of Finance provided a Section 51 Backgrounder to support the panel discussion.
