YOUTH PROTECTION THE CREE WAY
The Cree Youth Protection Commission’s goal is to adapt Youth Protection Services and certain Youth Criminal Justice Services in Eeyou Istchee to Cree culture, values, needs and realities.
“This project is an ongoing collaboration. This is the spirit of the Commission – input from all concerned. We will continue in this spirit.
How? By listening to you. Work by mental health professionals involves listening to others.
This is how we as Commissioners will work.”
– Commissioners Lorraine Spencer and Bella M. Petawabano
