dementiajusticereportcoverCanada’s criminal justice system is among the best in the world, but it is not keeping pace with the ageing population, particularly as it relates to criminal defendants with dementia. This must change. Entering the criminal justice system can have many collateral civil consequences for British Columbians with dementia. This report examines one of the most fundamental difficulties: housing vulnerability. For justice-involved dementia patients, it can be challenging to access appropriate housing, whether in assisted living, residential care or the larger community. As such, we make 30 recommendations which, if implemented, have a reasonable chance of improving the housing security of criminal defendants with dementia who enter the criminal justice system.
