Kia ora koutou and welcome to theSeptember edition of the YCAP newsletter.
This month, Canada’s Minister of Justice and Attorney General, the Honourable Jody Wilson-Raybould, visited New Zealand. She is the first indigenous person in Canada’s history to hold this position. The purpose of her visit was to gain insights into our justice system.
Hon Wilson-Raybould was particularly interested in New Zealand’s approach to youth justice. This provided a great opportunity for us to share with her all the great work that is happening in communities across the country under YCAP, in particular the work of Youth Offending Teams.
As noted in the August newsletter, YCAP events have been held in Kaitaia, Whangarei, Auckland, and Rotorua. In this newsletter, we share with you a snippet of the Rotorua and Auckland events.
As always, if you have any questions, comments, or suggestions about this newsletter, please don’t hesitate to get in touch with us through the YCAP ideas email address YCAPideas@justice.govt.nz
