Wood Street is a secure care institution for young people between the ages of 12 and 18, although children as young as 8 have been institutionalized there. The Nova Scotia government claims that Wood Street provides individualized treatment plans for youth with a range of complex behaviour and/ or emotional challenges. In truth, there is no treatment at this treatment centre.​
