In 1994 the Correctional Service of Canada established the National Community Corrections Council to instill community values into all strategic decisions of the Service, particularly with respect to the safe reintegration of offenders into the community. This document explains the principles, mandate, and organization of the Council. It also explains the Council’s commitments to the public, Community Corrections staff, and offenders. There is also information about significant projects and activities undertaken by the Council. A section on partnerships and public consultation examines the Council’s aims to increase community involvement in criminal justice and corrections.
