Report on Youth Delinquency

Topic(s): Rehabilitation

The Report on Youth Delinquency is a biennial publication by the NCPR, to assist those who work with youth-at-risk and youth offenders. The report covers a range of topics, including key statistics on the overall youth offending situation, information on publicly-funded support available to youth-at-risk and youth offenders, research findings on youth offending, among others.

The inaugural publication was a physical report titled the National Report on Youth Crime (2007-2013). Subsequent reports were renamed as Report on Youth Delinquency to reflect the inclusion of content on youth-at-risk, and released as digital reports to enhance access for those who work with youth-at-risk and youth offenders.

The latest publication, Report on Youth Delinquency 2021: I’m not difficult; I’m in a difficult situation, shifts the spotlight to the positive development of youth-at-risk and youth offenders, as well as the difficult family and global environments that many of these youths may find themselves in.
