HERE’S HOW THE AUTHORS DESCRIBE THIS REPORT:

Representatives from federal, provincial, and territorial governments met in Ottawa on March 12, 2020, to discuss the state of young adults in Canada’s correctional and broader justice system. In addition, two members representing British Columbia’s Provincial Association of Residential and Community Agencies attended.

The one-day meeting provided an opportunity to discuss lessons learned and possible steps to achieve better outcomes for young adults transitioning into the adult justice system and young adults entering the adult system directly. This report provides the key points from each of the major discussions and, most critically, Sections 6 & 7 (Future Strategies and Next Steps) provide a compelling preliminary vision for young adult justice reform and innovation, and sketch out the first steps toward making this vision a reality.
