A new leaflet outlining the agreement will be distributed to 100,000 households as part of the DUP's attempt to establish if the wider unionist community is happy with the settlement.
The First Minister asked people not to be prejudge the settlement on the basis of the negative comments its detractors and instead read it for themselves and come to their own view.
"In launching our leaflet on the Hillsborough Castle Agreement, we are providing people with information that will allow them to make an informed decision on the document,"Mr Robinson said.
The deal struck between the DUP and Sinn Fein after two weeks of marathon negotiations should see the devolution of policing and justice powers to the Stormont powersharing administration by April 12.
The agreement also laid out plans for an overhaul of the system for overseeing controversial parades to allow for greater local involvement in securing accommodations.
With the Assembly due to vote on the plan on March 9, the nationalist SDLP and Ulster Unionists are yet to be convinced by the proposals.
The Traditional Unionist Voice party, which is not represented in the Assembly, has rejected it outright.
Earlier this week Mr Robinson and Sinn Fein Deputy First Minister Martin McGuinness launched a joint advert in support of the deal.
But following a complaint by TUV leader Jim Allister, broadcasting regulator Ofcom is investigating whether the ad breaches guidelines on political advertising.
Commenting on the leaflet, Mr Robinson said it would give people the chance to see that a good deal had been achieved.
"My message to the people is clear: read the document and make up your own mind, don't allow others to make it up for you," he added.
