Community corrections

Learn more about the interventions, programs and services for offenders being released back to the community. These initiatives go beyond the end of their sentence. They align with an offender’s individual risks and needs to help them return to the community as law-abiding citizens.


Services and information

Community corrections and parole

Most offenders are eligible for release at some point before the end of their sentences, either through temporary absences, and conditional or statutory release.

Community employment services

Learn about how many offenders make the most of their incarcerated time by working hard to ensure they have the skills necessary to succeed once back in the community.

Community-based residential facilities

A Community-Based Residential Facility (CBRF) is a half-way house. These facilities provide a bridge between the institution and the community. They work on a system of gradual, supervised release. Many offer programming for residents such as life skills and counselling. Learn more about the different types of CBRFs in Canada.
