The Correctional Process - Module
The Correctional Process module takes students from fiction to reality by providing them with more concrete and realistic knowledge of the correctional process, from offence to release. It presents the various stages of offender management and a picture of a typical day in the life of an inmate, so that students can better understand the everyday role of the Correctional Service of Canada in bringing about a Canadian society that is just and secure.
As part of their law and/or sociology coursework, this module will allow students to:
- Understand the stages of the correctional process, from arrival at the penitentiary to conditional release;
- Define the inmate rights and responsibilities set out by legislation.
- Develop their understanding of the factors that affect their actions;
- Understand the importance of respecting common social values and the consequences of violating them;
- Become aware of the everyday reality of offenders incarcerated in federal institutions.
