Proceedings: Meeting Of Correctional Service Of Canada And National Women's Organizations: Update On The Federally Sentenced Women Initiative

Wrap-Up Comments

  • Participants expressed an interest in sharing a contact/address list of the various National Women’s Organizations at the meeting today, which CSC agreed to distribute together with the minutes. Various participants encouraged contact among the National Women’s Organizations to work together on initiatives.
  • S. McIvor noted that the Task Force on FSW recommended that the profile of the Federally Sentenced Women branch within the CSC should be raised, in such a way that the Director of this area be on the same level as that responsible for the men’s programs. This issue has not been addressed at all, and with the current down-sizing and reorganization, the profile of FSW within CSC must not be diminished or lowered within the bureaucracy.
  • J. Edwards noted the interest of the participants to have another meeting with CSC on FSW issues, e.g. community strategy, and indicated that this will be pursued in the future.
