A “Virtual” CYAC – Yukon model

Although Project Lynx does not have a centre or a single dedicated child friendly space, we do have an established Multidisciplinary Team (MDT) and refer to our project as a “virtual” CYAC. We have many of the best practice standards in place including enhanced child friendly spaces in RCMP detachments, witness rooms in court buildings, and meeting spaces where CYAC partners meet with young victims and witnesses. Our MDT meets regularly to coordinate, track and review files from Victim Services or another partner organizations, and uses video technology to connect with service providers in remote and rural communities to provide support and case updates.
