Rehabilitation starts on day one

Helping inmates prepare for life after prison starts in the very first days of their sentence. Professionals assess inmates to determine problems that need to be addressed, such as substance abuse or family violence. This information is used to develop a Correctional Plan.

All inmates have a Correctional Plan that outlines the programs and activities that will help in their rehabilitation. How well they follow their plan will affect whether or not they are granted conditional release.

Program areas include:

Programs have also been created to help Aboriginal inmates. These focus on parenting, substance abuse, Aboriginal spirituality, education and training. Aboriginal communities help deliver these programs.

The goal of all programs is to protect society by helping offenders move away from the way of life that got them in trouble in the first place.
