Call To Action:
34. We call upon the governments of Canada, the provinces,
and territories to undertake reforms to the criminal
justice system to better address the needs of offenders
with Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder (FASD),
i. Providing increased community resources and
powers for courts to ensure that FASD is properly
diagnosed, and that appropriate community
supports are in place for those with FASD.
ii. Enacting statutory exemptions from mandatory
minimum sentences of imprisonment for offenders
affected by FASD.
iii. Providing community, correctional, and parole
resources to maximize the ability of people with
FASD to live in the community.
iv. Adopting appropriate evaluation mechanisms to
measure the effectiveness of such programs and
ensure community safety.
