Purpose: The Bail Verification and Supervision Program represents an innovative and evidence-based approach to supervising low-risk Indigenous women in the community while awaiting their criminal trails. Courtworkers will refer clients to the bail verification program and will work with the caseworkers regarding risk assessment and referrals. Workers will provide supervision for clients, ensure they attend all court appearances, understand and meet all bail conditions, help them navigate the criminal court process, and access social supports and programs to deal with common problems such as addictions and mental health issues.
