To support the ongoing development of holistic and restorative approaches to criminal justice in Canada, Indigenous Perspectives Society offers Gladue Writer Training in collaboration with Dr. Jane Dickson, Associate Professor of Law and Legal Studies at Carleton University in Ottawa, Ontario.
“Indigenous peoples are over-represented in Canada’s criminal justice system due to socio-economic factors arising from intergenerational trauma caused by colonization, including being displaced from their lands, their resources, and the residential school system. Gladue Writer Training provides the opportunity for writers to help tell the stories of why and how people become involved with the system. Using the Gladue Report process, sentences can be improved, with courts understanding the root causes of behavior.”
– Rachelle Dallaire, Indigenous Perspectives Society Executive Director
The next Gladue Writer Training will be offered August 10-October 18, 2020. For more information and to register please click here.
