The author argues that while there is potential for these programs to be effective in reducing recidivism, the way in which they are implemented and the resources allocated to them can impact their success. The findings show that diversion programs can be effective in reducing recidivism, but that the current approach to implementing these programs in Canada is inconsistent and could be approved. This article is linked to my research question on the effect of diversion programs on recidivism rates among juvenile offenders in Canada as it provides an in-depth analysis of the current state of these programs in Canada and their impact. The article was chosen because it provides a comprehensive overview of the Canadian context, which is relevant to my question.
