Halifax Youth Attendance Centre

The Halifax Youth Attendance Centre (HYAC) addresses the needs of moderate-high risk youth under court ordered community supervision in Halifax Regional Municipality (HRM), by providing access to a number of services including, forensic youth mental health, education, employment support and addictions intervention. Youth cases in HRM are managed by a team of probation officers to ensure compliance with court orders and timely access to supports and services necessary to address individual criminogenic factors. HYAC is administered by the Department of Justice, in a collaborative partnership with the Departments of Education, Community Services and Health and their service providers.
