Friends and families of offenders

Developing and maintaining family and community ties throughout an offender's sentence is a vital step in ensuring an offender's successful reintegration back into the community. CSC offers services, such as private family visiting, which help offenders keep in touch with their loved ones.

Information for Families of Offenders

Visiting with family encourages offenders to develop and maintain family and community ties in preparation for their return to the community. It also helps to lessen the negative impact of incarceration on family relationships.

The Canadian Families and Corrections Network (CFCN) assists family members of those involved in crime and the criminal justice system. CFCN supports families by providing information and referrals to community resources, delivering services, and conducting research.
