  2. 2. Did you know: Aboriginal youth are over-represented in the justice system. “A One Day Snapshot of Aboriginal Youth In Custody Across Canada” A document complied by the Dept. of Justice (2001) identified 24% of the youth in custody in the province of Ontario were Aboriginal. Research suggests poverty, substance abuse, sexual exploitation, lack of education and disconnection from identity, culture and community were contributing factors.
