A Gladue report is a form of a pre-sentence report prepared at the bail stage or sentencing stage.
The Gladue Worker will write a Gladue report detailing the unique life circumstances of an Aboriginal person charged with a criminal offence, who is applying for bail OR who has pled guilty (or been found guilty) of a criminal offence and is being sentenced.
The Gladue report will link the life story of an Aboriginal offender to the broader issues facing Aboriginal people, e.g. the inter-generational trauma of residential schools or the 60s scoop.
The Gladue report will provide detailed recommendations for the judge to consider in terms of sentencing.
