Gladue Report Training Teaches Participants
- The law pertaining to Gladue rights
- The structure and function of Canadian criminal courts, including trial and sentencing processes
- The required content of Gladue reports including proper composition, structure, referencing and presentation of reports
- How to construct good recommendations for the court; and prepare for examination of the report and the writer for court
Over ten weeks of learning, participants develop an understanding of the importance of story-telling as healing, the role of historic trauma, historic trauma responses, and intergenerational effects in the over-representation of Indigenous people in the criminal justice system.
Supported by interactive Adobe Connect sessions, participants obtain resources and learn research skills to assist in crafting good reports and making viable and appropriate sentencing recommendations.
There are two time options for the mandatory Adobe Connect sessions for each module to accommodate most schedules.
