This survey collected information on the nature and extent of health-related services in Ontario’s youth custody facilities and examined how the services provided compare with standards recommended by the Canadian Paediatric Society and the World Health Organization for the health care of youth in custodial facilities. The results reveal that the facilities appear to be observing most of the recommendations from the Canadian Paediatric Society and the World Health Organization. There is considerable variation in the services provided across the facilities, and secure custody facilities have a greater variety of services available. Service provision appears to be related to a number of factors, including facility size, location, ownership, community resources and funding.
