A Career in Health Care at CSC

The Correctional Service of Canada (CSC) is looking to expand its team of health care professionals to work in institutional facilities and in communities across Canada.

CSC is a leader in correctional practices and innovation. Health care professionals working in our institutions and in the community provide offenders with physical and mental health care services that contribute to their rehabilitation and successful reintegration.

The majority of offenders will eventually return to the community. By helping to improve their health, you will directly contribute not only to improving health within institutions, but in the community as well.

Join a team that is changing lives

As a CSC health care professional, you will join a collegial, dynamic and diverse team of highly dedicated professionals who believe in their abilities and the impact they can have on changing lives. You will provide offenders with effective health services that encourage individual responsibility, promote healthy reintegration, and contribute to safe communities.

Who we are


Nurses in CSC provide a wide range of services to the offender population. Our nurses are involved in diverse activities including: the ongoing assessment and treatment of health conditions, educating offenders on infectious diseases and healthy lifestyles, and addressing the mental health needs of offenders.


CSC is the largest employer of psychologists in Canada. Our psychologists provide treatment and assess offender risk, and are world-renowned for their work in developing risk assessment tools, and contributing to corrections research. The complex mental health needs of offenders present fascinating challenges for psychologists. Psychologists change lives by helping offenders change their behaviours and adopt more positive lifestyles.


CSC pharmacists play a key role in the provision of offender health services. They ensure that offender medication is appropriate and has minimal risk in terms of side effects or toxicity. This has become increasingly challenging due to the multifaceted health issues offenders face, which usually involve multi-drug regimens.

Social Workers

Social workers provide support and intervention to assist offenders with functional and cognitive impairments as a result of mental disorders, developmental disabilities, and brain injuries. Social workers develop and maintain relationships with offenders’ families, outside organizations, and agencies to prepare and provide support for offenders on release.
