Ethnocultural and social development services
Offenders belonging to ethnocultural minority groups often have specific needs based on:
- culture, or
- belief system
The federal correctional system works to address these needs to help preserve and promote cultural identity and practices.
Interventions, services and activities are in place to ensure the specific needs and cultural interests of ethnocultural offenders are identified and met. This contributes to the goal of successful reintegration and enhanced public safety.
There are several services, interventions, and activities in place for ethnocultural offenders. Many of these have been developed in consultation with partners such as Correctional Service Canada's (CSC) ethnocultural advisory committees, to assist offenders in preserving their cultural identity and practices throughout their sentence.
