    This Juristat article provides an overview of caseload and characteristics of young persons aged 12 to 17 years admitted to and released from correctional services in 2008/2009, and includes a focused analysis of Aboriginal youth in corrections. The article uses data from the Youth Custody and Community Services (YCCS) Survey and the Integrated Correctional Services Survey (ICSS) to analyze trends in admissions to and releases from sentenced custody, remand (pre-trial detention) and probation.

Focused analysis of Aboriginal youth includes comparisons with non-Aboriginal youth in the following areas: incarceration rates as of Census Day 2006 for jurisdictions that provided detailed data (i.e., Newfoundland and Labrador and New Brunswick combined, Ontario and Alberta); length of time spent in custody and offence types.

  • Articles and reports: 85-561-M2009016
    Geography: Canada
    Description:

    This report provides an overview of issues on mental health and the criminal justice system, as well as the feasibility of collecting data on individuals with mental illness in the criminal justice system. While there have been pockets of studies and data collection activities trying to quantify the issue at the police, courts and corrections levels, there is presently a lack of data to understand the extent of the problem to inform decision-making regarding policy and action, and to measure outcomes of current initiatives and processes.

    The first part of the report describes issues with regard to mental illness and the criminal justice system, including definitional challenges, criminal justice system processes, previous studies on the prevalence of individuals with mental illness in the criminal justice system, and the relationship between individuals with mental illness and criminal justice involvement.

    The second part presents the results from consultations with over 100 stakeholders, including law enforcement, courts, Review Boards, correctional services, mental health organizations, academics and researchers and non-governmental organizations. It also proposes options for collecting data on persons with mental health issues in the criminal justice system.
