Teryl Scott Lawyers Inc. partners with the Canadian Rights and Freedoms Centre. The Centre promotes human rights and freedoms by working with communities, businesses and governments to reduce conflict, repair harm, and build stronger relationships with individuals and communities who are most vulnerable to social injustice.

The Centre adopts a restorative justice philosophy: It seeks to repair the harm of victims by engaging a process that builds personal responsibility in the individual who did the harm and communities that created or contributed to it.
