Ethnocultural advisory committees

The Correctional Service of Canada (CSC) has a National Ethnocultural Advisory Committee (NEAC) as well as regional ethnocultural advisory committees (REAC). They advise the Correctional Service of Canada (CSC) on the delivery of programs and services that contribute to ethnocultural offender reintegration and enhance public safety.

CSC policy states that the organization must identify and meet the specific needs and cultural interests of ethnocultural offenders. CSC must provide effective services and interventions that will help ethnocultural offenders reintegrate successfully and enhance public safety. This includes making sure that NEAC and REAC are in place and supported.

Celebrating 20 years of NEAC presents the NEAC's contribution since 2001.

Who are the ethnocultural advisory committees

NEAC is composed of the chair and vice-chair of each REAC.

NEAC members work at the national level and provide advice to the commissioner.

REACs are composed of influential members of the community who come from ethnocultural backgrounds or have experience working in the area of multiculturalism. They provide advice to the regional deputy commissioner in their region.
