Youth Criminal Justice Act (YCJA) Section 38

Giving youth an opportunity to heal and grow while taking responsibility for their actions is important. This publication looks at the diverse options available to youth under Section 38(2)(d) of the YCJA. It explains that all options other than custody that are reasonable must be considered for all youth, but particularly for Aboriginal youth. As this section reflects a similar intention to Section 718.2(e) of the Criminal Code, it recognizes the need to take into account the underlying circumstances of a youth’s offending behaviour.

Youth Criminal Justice Act (YCJA) Section 19

Responding to wrongdoing in a way that fosters healing, growth, and restoration of relationships is essential for youth. This publication explores how Section 19 of the YCJA makes conferences available to youth involved in the criminal justice system. This easily accessible publication will help youth, their families, and communities understand the options available for sentencing, release, extrajudicial measures, review of a sentence, and reintegration into the community.
