Hot off the press from LSS: Gladue Primer

Gladue PrimerThis new booklet, the Gladue Primer, is for Aboriginal defendants who want to know more about their Gladue rights and are working with their lawyer or advocate to prepare a Gladue report. The booklet may also be helpful to Aboriginal advocates, Aboriginal justice workers, members of the Aboriginal community, and the legal community. Gladue rights are rights under the Criminal Code that refer to the special consideration that judges must give an Aboriginal person when setting bail or during sentencing. Glaude rights apply to anyone who self-identifies as Aboriginal. The booklet explains in plain language the history of Gladue and what Gladue rights mean for Aboriginal defendants. The booklet also has a workbook and resources that will walk Aboriginal defendants and their lawyer or advocate through the process of preparing a Gladue report.
