Youth Facility

The Cree Nation Government expects to break ground on the construction of the Youth Facility in Mistissini in the summer of 2017, while its construction will be completed in 2019.

By building this new Youth Facility in Eeyou Istchee, it will give us the capacity to keep Cree young offenders and youth at risk closer to home, allowing the families and communities to remain involved in the healing process. Furthermore, to help with the prevention or the rehabilitation of the offenders, culturally appropriate programs in Cree delivered by Cree staff will be developed, such as land based programs and Cree programming.
