Correctional Services provides programs to offenders while under community supervision or in custody which are culturally, gender sensitive, and address factors that relate to criminal behaviour and facilitate successful reintegration into the community. Programs are facilitated by trained Correctional Services Staff and where appropriate, in coordination with other government and community agencies.
WOOF is an innovative program where offenders help train dogs for families wanting to adopt.
