Regional Ethnocultural Advisory Committees (REACs) are an essential part of the Correctional Service of Canada (CSC)’s efforts to help ethnocultural offenders reintegrate successfully into the community. The volunteer members of REACs across Canada, like the Rev.

The Correctional Service of Canada (CSC) is proud to work with thousands of members of the public in various capacities across our organization. They help (CSC) fulfill its mandate by bringing a community perspective to our work and contributing to the successful rehabilitation and reintegration of offenders.
