Youth Records: Information in the Department of Justice Website

Youth Records

"As a general rule, the Youth Criminal Justice Act (YCJA) protects the privacy of young persons who are accused or found guilty of a crime by keeping their identity and other personal information confidential. The protection of privacy is achieved by prohibiting the publication of information that would identify a young person’s involvement in the criminal justice system and by restricting access to their youth records.

This fact sheet contains general information regarding youth records under the YCJA (Department of Justice).
