Rehabilitative Alternatives to Incarceration Handbook

About the resource: "Rehabilitative Alternatives to Incarceration: A Handbook of Community and Government Programs in Saskatchewan", which identifies rehabilitative program options across Saskatchewan for individuals in conflict with the law. The purpose of the Handbook is to increase awareness about community and government resources that provide alternatives to custodial sentences, particularly for Indigenous peoples. The Handbook is poised to assist defence counsel in pointing to the applicability of Gladue principles while identifying alternative, rehabilitative programming for their clients. The Handbook is also poised to assist judges, probation officers and parole officers in identifying programming options. The ultimate aim of the Handbook is to reduce the overrepresentation of Indigenous people in the criminal justice system by providing programming alternatives that address criminogenic factors and promote healing in the lives of Indigenous people, their families and communities.
