Commissioner's Thank you

On behalf of the Correctional Service of Canada (CSC), I want to thank volunteers for your selfless contributions to our organization and to Canadian communities.

In November 2001, CSC established the National Volunteer Association (NVA) to further strengthen ties between CSC, volunteers and the community. The NVA represents volunteers with CSC and provides a network of support for CSC volunteers across Canada.

Today, approximately 6,200 Canadians volunteer their time, energy and passion to helping offenders become law-abiding citizens. Their work inside our institutions and in the community provides a bridge for offenders to safely transition from incarceration to rehabilitation.

The Mission of the Correctional Service of Canada speaks to our contribution to public safety. The tireless efforts of our many volunteers, who build partnerships and form relationships with the communities we serve, make our institutions and communities safer places for everyone.

Thank you again for your hard work and dedication and for the outstanding contributions you make every day in the lives of so many Canadians.

Anne Kelly
