The Correctional Service of Canada (CSC) is celebrating the 30th anniversary of its mission statement this year! Since 1989, our mission has been the foundation of the important work CSC does every day. We are proud of the service accomplished to contribute to public safety and help offenders become law-abiding citizens.

A new CORCAN project began in the Quebec Region in the summer of 2018 to support offenders on conditional release with their social and occupational reintegration. This initiative allows them to work as installers on a transitional basis to develop and apply technical and job-related skills prior to entering the job market.
Tucked away at Nova Institution in Truro, Nova Scotia offenders are hard at work at the new Pulse assembly and testing site. This site is operated by CORCAN as part of the offender employment and employability program.

Inuit communities share ties to Canada's oceans that span generations. They value the oceans as a source of livelihood, food security, and transportation routes. The Nunavut Fisheries and Marine Training Consortium (NFMTC), a not-for-profit organization created in 2005, provides training opportunities to Nunavut land claim beneficiaries interested in pursuing careers in the fishing industry through the Kisarvik Program.
