Did you know?

Thousands of Canadians volunteer their time, energy and passion to helping offenders become law-abiding citizens. Their work inside our institutions and in the community provides a bridge to help offenders safely transition from incarceration to rehabilitation.

We want to hear from you!

We are always looking for ways to improve volunteer experience. If you are a CSC volunteer, please take a moment to share your thoughts with us by filling out our survey before December 31, 2021:

Are you interested in helping offenders become law-abiding citizens? Would you like to make a difference and support families of incarcerated offenders?

If you have answered yes and have the time, energy and passion to volunteer, there are many opportunities and programs where you can make a difference in the lives of offenders. Some of these programs include:

  • Chaplaincy;
  • Recreation activities;
  • Classroom and workshop instruction; and
  • Cultural activities.

There is also an opportunity to directly impact your community. This can be done by supporting families of offenders or helping released offenders re-adjust to life.

We invite you to join to the thousands of volunteers who are making a difference and contributing to the safety of communities across Canada.
