‘Navigator-Advocates’ help Indigenous offenders with FASD understand the legal process
Yukon’s Kwanlin Dün First Nation is partnering in a new program aimed at helping Indigenous people with fetal alcohol spectrum disorder (FASD) navigate the justice system.
MP Ralph Goodale announced the $978,272-investment on Friday in Saskatchewan. The University of Regina will work with Kwanlin Dün and the FASD Network of Saskatchewan to implement the “Navigator-Advocates” program.
Frontline workers will assist both youth and adults before their first court appearance and during their time in custody, helping them understand the legal process.
