Responding to the TRC Calls to Action March 2016: FASD

In 2010 and 2013, the CBA called for greater sensitivity and flexibility in the criminal justice and corrections systems to deal more appropriately with people with brain injuries such as FASD.  The CBA and others recognize the disproportionate incidence of FASD in Indigenous communities. Calls to action 33 and 34 are consistent with the CBA position on this issue, and recognize the importance of seeing this problem through an Indigenous lens.
