Dates of existence



In 1985, the Young Offender Division of the Department of Social Services was established to administer the client files of youth, aged 12 to 17, who were in the justice system in accordance with the federal Young Offenders Act (Canada). Services offered were consistent with the Act, and included Alternative Measures (non-judicial mediation), Community Options (judicial interim release, community homes, day programs, community service orders, personal service orders, fines, compensation, and probation), and Custody Options (remand, open custody and secure custody.)

The Young Offender Division was discontinued in 1992 and responsibility for its programs and services was transferred to the department's Family and Youth Services Division.
