HOT OFF THE PRESS! Release of Environmental Scan: FASD & The Justice System in Canada

Environmental Scan: FASD & The Justice System in Canada is a report prepared by Dr. Michelle Stewart and her research team at the University of Regina. This research is supported in part by the University of Regina and Canada FASD Research Network. The report aims to provide a comprehensive overview of FASD and justice programs across Canada, in addition to identifying all existing services for individuals with FASD including assessment, diagnostics, and programming for youth and adults.

Dr. Michelle Stewart and her research team have begun distributing the report to interested partners and organizations across Canada. This environmental scan is a working document that aims to engage with the youth and adult justice sectors to facilitate understandings of programs and practices, and is the first step in formulating a comprehensive summary of FASD and the justice system across Canada. Comments and suggestions about this report are welcomed. We are hopeful that the report will facilitate a sharing of information between organizations and increase knowledge regarding FASD in the justice system and existing services which support individuals who are affected by FASD.
