Youth Offences

The Youth Criminal Justice Act (YCJA) deals with minors who have been charged with criminal offences in Canada. The Justice system can be a scary place for anyone facing a criminal charge, even more so for young persons. The YCJA is specifically aimed at punishing young people who have yet to reach their full maturity. It was drafted with a focus on rehabilitation and program development, the  goal being to correct criminal behaviour without removing the young from society.  It specifies that jail is only an option as a last resort when every other measure has been exhausted. It allows a young person to have a lawyer present with them when being questioned by police, unlike adult offenders.
