What We Do

Youth Justice Ontario is a provincial association representing transfer payment agencies that provide essential and mandatory services to youth who come in conflict with the law.

We advocate for a system that works with the whole youth in an integrated fashion and role models respectful, healthy relationships. We strongly believe that youth engaged in their communities do not harm communities.

We respect and value the need to work cooperatively with the government and our local communities. Youth Justice Ontario believes that rehabilitation and change is key for the future of these youth and their communities.
