A Career in Psychology at CSC

The Correctional Service of Canada (CSC) is looking for psychologists to work in institutions and parole offices across Canada.

As a CSC psychologist, you will have a significant impact in changing offender’s behaviours and helping them to adopt more positive lifestyles, assisting in their safe reintegration into the community.
