The Pacific Path Program, developed by the Pacific Institute in Montreal, Quebec, is a conflict resolution and violence prevention program for children. Students learn to understand and manage their feelings, develop their listening and communication skills, and are given strategies, and opportunities to work and solve problems peacefully with their peers.

This program is available for elementary schools, with an extended version, “Different but Not Indifferent”, available for high school. Students receive training in mediation and are provided with opportunities to act as mediators for peers in conflict.

The Pacific Path Program has been implemented in almost one thousand schools across Quebec, and is available only in French. It has been recognized as a “best practice” program by the Canadian Best Practices Portal.
