Correctional services plays a key role in Ontario’s criminal justice system. We operate adult correctional institutions and probation and parole offices for offenders serving jail sentences of less than two years and community supervision for up to three years.
We also have jurisdiction over adult inmates under provincial parole supervision, and provide programs and services designed to assist in inmate rehabilitation.
Careers and volunteer opportunities in correctional services are diverse and exciting, and we take pride in making a difference in the lives of those under our custody and supervision, as well as protecting the safety of our communities.
