Exclusive possession is a court order that says only one partner can stay in, or return to, the home and the other partner isn't allowed on the property. If there are children, usually the order also includes that the children are allowed on the property. The order is usually temporary. The court doesn't decide who owns the home or who rented it when deciding which partner can stay in it.

Body:

A child is in extended society care when they are in the care and custody of the Children’s Aid Society and they have to stay in their care until one of the following happens:

  • the court changes the order
  • the child turns 18
  • the child gets married
  • the child is adopted

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.

Body:

Extrajudicial Measures (EJMs) are a type of youth diversion.

Diversion is when criminal charges are taken out of the court and dealt with in a more informal way. That means dealing with your charges without having a trial or pleading guilty. If you accept EJM, your court case is put on hold while you:

  • attend a program
  • take a course, or
  • complete other tasks away from the court

Once you finish your program, course, or other tasks, your court case will be closed.

If you accept EJM, you will have a youth record for 2 months. EJM records are much shorter than EJS records. A record for EJS lasts for 2 years.

The police can offer EJM before they charge you with a crime. The Crown can offer EJM after the police charge you.

Body:

EJS is the most serious type of youth diversion. If you accept EJS you will have a youth record for 2 years.
