Resources, Briefs & Papers

Everything the Society publishes – on criminal justice or correctional policy – is in the public domain, and some of it is on You-Tube. You can read the testimony of various Senate or House of Commons presentations by searching the name of the Bill, the forum (House or Senate) and the date of the appearance.

Here is a page dedicated to Bill C-15, An Act to amend the Controlled Drugs and Substances Act and to make related and consequential amendments to other Acts.

The other excellent source of high-quality research is the Library of Parliament.

For meta-analyses of criminal justice policies conducted to the highest scientific standards, go to the Campbell Collaboration.

If you have a question about some aspect of correctional or justice policy research, you could hardly do better than to start at the Centre of Criminology's library.
