Youth Criminal Justice in Canada

Youth Criminal Justice in Canada

This infographic was developed for Family Counselling and Support Services for Guelph-Wellington, and the Canadian Families and Corrections Network. It represents the typical journey of a youth offender (aged 12-17) when going through the Canadian criminal justice system. It then compares this journey to the process followed when guiding youth offender through restorative justice and compares costs and outcomes of each process. It concludes that restorative justice is more than six times more cost-effective than traditional criminal justice.
