Offender Rehabilitation

The Correctional Service of Canada (CSC) has a legal mandate to provide programs and services that address offenders’ criminal behaviour. We offer these both in institutions and in the community. Correctional programs are based on research of “what works”. We are guided by the most recent evidence in correctional research, relevant theory and current practices. Our programs focus on four areas:

Correctional programs target factors that have been proven to reduce future re-offending. They were developed and put in place with the help of our most experienced program developers, facilitators, and managers. We have also consulted with internal and external stakeholders. We offer programs designed for men, women and Aboriginal offenders.
