Bail Support Program

 

The Bail Support Program serves two principles upon which our democratic justice system is based: presumption of innocence before trial and fair treatment of all people regardless of social and economical background.The bail worker provides:

  • the judiciary with a clear plan of supervision as an alternative to a remand in custody for individuals seeking bail releases, either directly from courts or through other judicial process

  • assessment and case management of personal circumstance

  • education, empowerment and support of the individual’s ability to make the necessary changes to reduce recidivism

  • counselling and referral services for women and gender diverse people who are released from custody by the courts

  • advocacy, support and collaboration with other community agencies

  • assistance in addressing issues including mental health, addictions, housing, employment and interpersonal supports while awaiting trial
