Abstract

The present by-law establishes the general application framework of the guiding principles as set out in the Youth Protection Act. The purpose of the present by-law is to specify the principles to which the institution adheres to regarding youth protection. Since the Director of Youth Protection also assumes powers and duties in other matters, such as in the case of young persons under the Youth Criminal Justice Act and adoption, the elements relevant thereto must be considered.

The present by-law also specifies the responsibilities and duties arising from the Youth Protection Act and the Youth Criminal Justice Act, as well as their application by the various departments of the institutions, as well as their interactions with each other. The by-law further clarifies the conditions for the exercise of such responsibilities and duties, as well as the accountability mechanisms applicable to the institution.

Finally, the present by-law is intended to inform the beneficiaries of the Cree Board of Health and Social Services of James Bay on the application of the Youth Protection Act.
