This 2-hour training session on the Youth Criminal Justice Act (YCJA) is designed for lawyers. This training session is developed by the Department of Justice Canada with the purpose of providing insight into the YCJA and its principles, with an emphasis on the recent amendments to the YCJA following former Bill C-75.
This training session will allow participants to better understand and contextualize the principles of the YCJA, recent amendments to the Act, the reasoning and objectives behind these amendments, administration of justice offences, diversion methods, as well as bail and sentencing principles and conditions.
The instructor for this course, Sandra Couture, is a member of the Quebec Bar who works with Justice Canada in the Youth Justice and Strategic Initiative Section where she provides legal and policy advice on all matters related to the YCJA and Canada’s youth justice system.
