A One-Day Snapshot of Aboriginal Youth in Custody Across Canada

Chapter 3 - Atlantic

3.1 Introduction

In some jurisdictions, the number of Aboriginal youth in custody on Snapshot day was small, thereby making it difficult to analyse the data. For instance, Newfoundland , Prince Edward Island , Nova Scotia and New Brunswick each accounted for less than one percent of the total number of Aboriginal youth in custody across Canada on Snapshot day. Therefore, for the purpose of data analysis, these jurisdictions were combined as the Atlantic .

Information from the Atlantic was collected through a combination of file reviews and interviews with youth (conducted by facility staff).
