The Church Council on Justice and Corrections (CCJC) is a Canadian coalition of faith-based individuals and churches advocating for a more humane way to practice criminal justice. This reflection sheet, prepared by the CCJC, provides a framework for faith communities and individuals in Canada to engage in dialogue about youth in conflict with the law, their crimes, and their victims. The sheet came out following release of the Canadian governmentâ€™s proposed strategy for youth justice reform. Hence, it also summarizes the governmentâ€™s strategy and analyzes it for strengths and weaknesses.
