Extra Judicial Sanctions (EJS)

A way of diverting youth criminal behaviour. EJS can be imposed before or after a young person is charged with a criminal offence. Examples of EJS include:

  • volunteer work
  • compensating the complainant
  • attending specialized programs

If you finish the program, your court case is over and you won't have a youth court record, but there will be a police record of your participation in EJS for 2 years.
