Youth Criminal Justice Act

The following definition was found at the web site listed under 'References' below. Find more definitions in David Spencer's Education Paragon Glossary.

"The Youth Criminal Justice Act is the legislation in Canada that deals with young people who break the law.

The legislation applies to young people who were 12 to 17 years old when the action they are accused of was committed.

When a young person breaks the law, police use the Youth Criminal Justice Act to decide what action they will take. A young person may be dealt with outside of the formal court process, or may be sent to court. A young person who is found guilty, will be given a sentence by the court."
