Canada Providing Support to Ukraine’s Juvenile Justice Sector
05 August 2014 21:14

Lois Brown, Parliamentary Secretary to the Honourable Christian Paradis, Minister of International Development and La Francophonie, together with Jeff Watson, Member of Parliament for Essex and Parliamentary Secretary for Transport, held a consultation with the Ukrainian diaspora in Windsor, Ontario.

The participants opened the discussion with a moment of silence to commemorate the sudden passing of Mr. Bill Buska, President of the Ukrainian Orthodox Cathedral of St. Vladimir.

Following the round table, PS Brown and PS Watson announced additional funding to a successful initiative that is helping establish a more effective and responsive juvenile justice system in Ukraine. The aim is to facilitate a shift away from incarcerating adolescents for relatively minor crimes, and toward the greater application of Canadian approaches for crime prevention, probation, and rehabilitation within Ukraine’s framework for youth justice.

The Government of Canada announced an additional $3.6 million in funding to the ongoing Juvenile Justice Reform project. This project, which originally started in 2007, aims to establish a more effective and responsive juvenile justice system in Ukraine that is in line with international standards. It works with Ukrainian legislators, law enforcement agencies, and the court system to facilitate a shift away from incarcerating adolescents for relatively minor crimes and toward the greater application of Canadian approaches for crime prevention, probation, and rehabilitation within Ukraine’s framework for youth justice.

The project has three main components:

  1. judicial training program to strengthen the capacity of Ukrainian judges and court officials to apply approaches for rehabilitation, crime prevention and other best practices in their handling of cases where youth are in conflict with the law;
  2. legislative policy effort to facilitate ongoing reforms by incorporating international standards for children’s rights and restorative justice into the Ukrainian judicial system; and
  3. Regional pilot initiatives based on juvenile justice models used in Alberta and Ontario to demonstrate the advantages of new approaches and to establish a critical mass of compelling evidence that supports progressive policy change and institutional reform within Ukraine’s youth justice system.

“Canada remains committed to helping the people of Ukraine, including the establishment of a juvenile justice system that is in line with international standards,” said PS Brown. “By working with Ukrainian legislators, law enforcement agencies, and the court system, Canada’s approaches to crime prevention and rehabilitation will help build an improved youth justice framework in Ukraine.”
