Capture- Yukon Gladue - Research and Resource Project

In an information bulletin released by The Law Society of Yukon, they acknowledge the seriousness of access to justice issues in remote and northern communities across Canada and identify four areas of particular concern:

  1. Lack of social resources
  2. Lack of legal resources
  3. Lack of alternative measures and restorative justice programs
  4. Lack of Gladue information before the Courts

The Law Society recently expressed their support for the Gladue Pilot project aimed at addressing these and related, longstanding access to justice issues.
