Indigenous Perspective Society: Centre of Excellence in Community Education (IPS) offers a one-day Fundamentals of Gladue for Communities training specifically designed to equip community members, community representatives and justice workers with a foundational understanding of Gladue requirements, their meaning in law and their importance in practice. Participants will learn when, where and how the requirements apply in the criminal justice process, the different ways Gladue information can impact that process and how to mobilize Gladue to assist community members to manage justice issues and move toward healing. This training provides community members with foundational knowledge of Gladue requirements, how they work and how Gladue can improve the experiences of community members and their families as they navigate the criminal justice system.

Training outcomes:

  • The key legal elements of Gladue
  • The role and purpose of Gladue at different points in the criminal justice system (e.g., bail, sentencing, parole, etc.)
  • How the Gladue requirements are met and best practices in Gladue work
  • Where the Gladue requirements apply and how they can impact decision-making
  • How to make Gladue work for you and your community
