Role of John Howard Societies in Canada
The John Howard Societies in Canada perform essentially two roles: advocating to the Government of Canada for correctional and criminal justice policy that adheres to the principles of "effective, just and humane"; and, deliver best practice services that embody these principles and are shown to be economically responsible and accountable to the communities in which our offices are located.
The first task—advocacy to the Government of Canada—falls to the national office in Kingston. The second task falls to the provincial and local offices across Canada, from Yellowknife to St. John’s.
