What is a plan of care?

If you can't get a Gladue report or letter, make a plan of care that your lawyer or duty counsel can use at your sentencing hearing. The plan of care might include suggestions for community resources and Indigenous supports for mental health, trauma, addictions, or homelessness. It might also include suggestions for participation in cultural activities.

Ask if there is an Indigenous court worker at the courthouse who can help you with your plan of care. If not, your lawyer or duty counsel can help you.
