Purpose: This project will explore language, cultural and legal barriers to fair and effective youth justice for Aboriginal youth in conflict with the law in Newfoundland and Labrador. It will include a series of focus groups with service providers and youth involved in the justice system to explore barriers that exist for Aboriginal youth and to seek feedback on how such barriers might be addressed. Recommendations from these focus groups will include considerations on how to overcome these barriers, which will be shared with the Government of Newfoundland and Labrador, Department of Justice. This project will also explore existing legal information and resources available to support Aboriginal youth in conflict with the law.
