Under the supervision of the Director of Gladue Services of the BC First Nations Justice Council (BCFNJC), the Gladue writer supports Indigenous peoples and justice personnel in applying the sentencing principles set out in section 718.2 (e) of the Criminal Code of Canada. The aim is to provide a written Gladue report for the Indigenous person’s sentencing, bail or appeal hearing.
The Gladue writer will provide the court with a Gladue report that gives a comprehensive picture of the life circumstances, background factors and systemic barriers of the Indigenous person’s life that played a part in bringing them before the courts. This information is compiled by conducting interviews with the accused, their family members, and other people who know the client and liaising with justice personnel.
The Gladue report identifies alternatives to incarceration, types of resources available in the community, including Indigenous-specific programs and services that address the underlying issues the accused is encountering.
This position demands a high level of social facilitation and mediation, independent analysis, problem-solving, case management and supervision, the ability to communicate and requires strict confidentiality, and exceptional writing skills.
