When working with young people involved in the criminal justice system, Probation Services oversees cases using a continuum of care model; that is, they ensure that young people have access to a seamless suite of programs and interventions to support them from all angles. In many cases, this involves working with Integrated Service Delivery (ISD) teams.

All youth services adhere to the Youth Criminal Justice Act and the UN Declaration on the Rights of the Child.

Serving justice-involved youth, Probation Services follows these principles:

  • client-centred
  • trauma-informed
  • rights-respecting
  • least restrictive

Young people who are sentenced to supervised probation can expect to work closely with a probation officer who will assist the young person in recognizing their strengths and achieving their goals.
