Juvenile Court in Retrospect: Seven Decades of History in Alberta (1913-1984)

  • Marjorie Montgomery Bowker

Abstract

This article commemorates the seventy-year history of Juvenile Courts in Alberta and traces the origins of juvenile courts both in general and specifically in Alberta. Bowker considers the effect of enlightened legislation, specialized court systems, and correction and rehabilitation services, all of which are crucial to the success of the system. The movement for reform and its culmination in the Young Offenders Act are examined.
