Job profile - Aboriginal community liaison officer

Male Aboriginal Community Liaison Officer

Aboriginal Community Liaison Officers are based in the community, not in CSC institutions. They monitor, support and motivate Aboriginal offenders. They work both with individual offenders and with groups.

Aboriginal Community Liaison Officers work with Elders to facilitate, organize and coordinate:

  • traditional and spiritual ceremonies
  • social activities
  • Aboriginal cultural programs

You will work to improve reintegration opportunities for Aboriginal offenders in the community. You will identify needs and resources available to offenders on release. You will be the bridge between CSC institutions and the community; particularly for offenders on statutory release.

You will help support the relationship-building process with Aboriginal communities and organizations. It is possible that you may be required to work occasional overtime hours.
