Youth Rehabiliation Centre

Equal Justice Canada has been operating a pilot Youth Rehabilitation Centre in Thunder Bay since September 29, 2017. The concept and mandate were created by Equal Justice Staff who felt that the criminal justice system and some of the Crown Attorneys may at times be too focused on keeping people trapped in the criminal justice system instead of seeking to find ways to rehabilitate and make it possible for accused individuals to become contributing and positive members of society.

The pilot rehabilitation Youth Program's mandate is to rehabilitate, reintegrate and stabilize first time youth offenders who are being released or have been released from youth and adult prisons. The goal is to ensure the well-being, support systems, continuing education, and employment for these youth and young adults so they stay out of the criminal justice system.

The first 25 youth in the program will be assessed and released from the Youth Rehabilitation Centre in Thunder Bay on December 20, 2017.
