Toronto Youth Equity Strategy
The Toronto Youth Equity Strategy was developed through deep consultation with Toronto Youth, adopted by city council in 2014. It identifies 28 key issues faced by youth most vulnerable to involvement in violence and crime that the City and its partners must address.

How It Works
The Fernie TYES Case Manager will encourage and support participants to develop the appropriate skills to address and manage the effects of trauma and violence, and working productively towards their goals.
The Fernie Case Manager will work with participants, along with their Probation/Parole Officer and others from the participant’s support team to complete a Needs Assessment and Service Plan. Service Plans will identify goals and targets that may include: living in a stable environment, improving relationships with family and positive friends, engaging in school and/or employment, participating in recreational activities, improving physical and mental health, addressing any addictions issues, learning new life skills and addressing involvement in the criminal justice system.
This program will support Young Adults (YA) 18 to 29 on Probation and/or Parole that have a firearm conviction and/or have been identified as being involved in gang activity.
