The EJM Program is a diversionary program for youth aged 12- 17 years (at the time of the offence). Police may refer a youth to the EJM program rather than laying a charge. This program allows youth to take responsibility for their offence, while providing education/support to the youth and family, with the goal of preventing further conflict with the law. The youth will make an agreement to complete specific sanctions. If the measures are successfully completed, the youth will not be charged with the offence.
