Public Safety Canada is responsible for developing legislation and policies governing corrections, implementing innovative approaches to community justice, and providing research expertise and resources to the corrections community.

We employ some of the world's most renowned corrections experts. We develop legislation and policy in conjunction with other federal departments and agencies, including Justice Canada, Foreign Affairs, Trade and Development Canada, Citizenship and Immigration Canada, and federal and provincial correctional and parole authorities. We also work with Aboriginal Affairs and Northern Development Canada and First Nations communities to develop culturally-specific correctional policies and programs.
