Community Corrections Programs

Community Corrections services cover all non-custody, community-based offender services and programs. Twenty-seven community corrections offices are located across the province, eleven in First Nations communities. With help from volunteers and other service providers, probation officers supervise:

  • probation and conditional sentences
  • youth justice committees
  • custody reintegration programs
  • court reports
  • provision of behaviour intervention programs

Special programs are designed for:

  • sex offenders
  • female offenders
  • assault offenders
  • custody offenders re-entering their communities
  • Aboriginal offenders.

Programs and supervision are based on the risks presented by offenders and how likely they are to re-offend. Higher-risk offenders receive more intensive services and programs. Partnerships between Corrections and community agencies improve the delivery of correctional programs and services.

The partnerships include:

  • school divisions
  • police
  • business associations
  • youth social service agencies
  • offender advocate agencies
  • Aboriginal agencies
  • provincial and federal government departments

Programs include:

  • gang diversion
  • Aboriginal culture
  • custody alternatives
  • employment preparation
