History of the Canadian Correctional System
The History of the Canadian Correctional System module provides an overview of how the correctional system has evolved. Students will be asked to compare the different approaches used over the centuries and to reflect on the development of our correctional system.
Canada’s Correctional System: A Team Effort
The Canada’s Correctional System: A Team Effort module enhances students’ understanding of the interactions that take place between various Correctional Service of Canada partners by exploring the roles each one plays in the lives of inmates.
Correctional Service Canada: At the Heart of Criminal Justice
From the police forces involved in arrests and investigations to the parole system, the Correctional Service of Canada: At the Heart of Criminal Justice module explains the legal bases of criminal justice and the importance of team work.
The Correctional Process
The Correctional Process module provides students with concrete and realistic knowledge of the correctional process, from offence to release. It explains the various stages of offender management and describes a typical day in the life of an inmate.
The Conditional Release module demystifies the process leading to the reintegration of offenders into the community. Not all inmates are allowed to return to the community; release must be earned gradually.
Helping the Offender
The goal of the Correctional Service of Canada is to safely reintegrate offenders into the community. The Helping the Offender module explains that reintegration must also consider the specific needs of the offender’s family and the community.
From Offender to Responsible Citizen: Learning for Life
Incarceration and supervision alone do not produce the long-term changes that many offenders require in order for them to lead productive, law-abiding lives in the community. The From Offender to Responsible Citizen: Learning for Life module provides an overview of the main programs available within institutions and in the community.
A Program for Every Inmate: Meeting Specific Needs
From the aging population to the specific needs of Aboriginal peoples, women and substance abuse offenders, programs must have the same objective: ensure the safe reintegration of all offenders. A Program for Every Inmate: Meeting Specific Needs explains some of those specific programs.
Helping Victims of Crime
The Helping Victims of Crime module explains how victims can request information and provide input in an inmate’s parole process.
