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.

TYES Support Services

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.


Service Requirements

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.


Case Management

The TYES Support Services provided by Fernie Youth Services will adopt a Case Management model that is the coordination of community-based services to provide young people with the quality supports that are customized according to an individual’s setbacks or challenges.
Case Managers will develop partnerships with City services and community-based organizations that can support the needs of the client. The Case Managers seek to reduce recidivism and support individuals through a holistic approach that considers each person’s overall needs.
