Examining Barriers to Employment for Young Men with Criminal Records

Crime Prevention Ottawa, through its Ottawa Street Violence and Gang Strategy, has identified lack of employment opportunities as a barrier for young men with criminal records and therefore set employment opportunities as a priority to address.

As such, Crime Prevention Ottawa contracted with Turner Consulting Group to identify the barriers in the Employment Service Program faced by this high-risk and underrepresented group and to make recommendations for changes to remove the barriers and address the identified issues.
