Abstract:

"In this report, the House of Commons Standing Committee on the Status of Women (the Committee) makes 96 recommendations to the Government of Canada on how it can help improve Indigenous women's access to and treatment in the justice system and their treatment in the correctional system. Many recommendations are aimed at helping to address factors contributing to Indigenous women's interactions with the criminal justice system, such as violence, substance abuse, mental health problems and illnesses, and the foster care crisis. The report also emphasizes the importance of improving Indigenous women's access to and treatment in the justice system, in particular through training for all key players in the system, access to legal aid, the use of Gladue reports, the restoration of judicial discretion in sentencing, and the implementation of alternative and restorative justice options. In addition, a number of recommendations are intended to improve Indigenous women's treatment in the federal correctional system, including with regards to segregation and solitary confinement; access to culturally sensitive programming, training and education; the Corrections and Conditional Release Act, access to health services; and parole and reintegration of female Indigenous offenders into their communities"--Provided by publisher.
