Programs & Services

Our Community Residential Facilities Staff have designed and deliver programs that demonstrate increased success rates in reintegration while offering the hope for men and their families that they need at the time of release and afterwards.

The Victim Impact Program (VIP) is currently available for residents who have been screened for acceptance with a recommendation to attend this program or through a referral. This 10 session group program helps to further the knowledge of how past criminal actions and values have an impact on the victims of their crimes with a focus on crime prevention through victim empathy and acknowledgement.

The Emotions Management and Violence Prevention Program (EMVP) is also offered on-site as a ten week continuous curriculum delivered at our CRF locations. The EMVP is held one evening per week in our Community Resource Rooms. The program focus is to re-evaluate, learn new and build upon skills acquired during the Correctional Plan now that the participant is back in the community.

These In-House Programs and all other programs can be recommended by our Local Community Assessment Team, Case Management Team or by the Parole Board of Canada.

The Employment Readiness Program is a multi step approach to re-engaging employers with a modern resume, interview skills and dressing for success.

These programs and others including: Bookclub, Bible Study and Games Night (for present and past residents) make our CRF relevant based upon evidence-based results!
