Youth Justice

Reduction in Youth Justice Involvement

Reducing the number of youth involved with the justice system, the Youth Justice Social Impact Bond, supports youth aged 12 to 18 years of age currently under restorative justice, community service orders and/or custody.

Manitoba is currently seeking a service provider to partner with to create a Youth Justice Social Impact Bond. The government will work with a service provider to implement a three-year program in Winnipeg and Thompson, with a holistic approach grounded in Indigenous traditions and knowledge. The program will provide services to support the whole person including the youths' natural and/or found families, mental health needs, and employment skills development and/or education.

The program will be funded through a social impact bond, and will be the first Justice SIB in Manitoba.
