The Canadian Council of Child and Youth Advocates (CCCYA), of which the Commission des droits de la personne et des droits de la jeunesse is a member, has released a new study on youth suicide at its national conference in Winnipeg yesterday. In it they put forward three recommendations for the federal government:

  1. To develop and implement a fully resourced, national suicide prevention strategy for Canada with designated funding to the provinces and territories;
  2. To develop and implement a cross-jurisdictional data system and to compel provinces to mandatory report attempted and completed suicides;
  3. To work with Indigenous youth and leadership to develop plans that will reflect what is needed in each community.
