Rehabilitation

CORCAN's Offender Employability Skills Project: The Civilizing Power of Skills (2000)

CORCAN, an agency within the Correctional Service of Canada, is rehabilitating offenders by developing their employability skills.

Offenders generally lack the generic skills, attitudes, and behaviours needed to find and keep a job when they re-enter society. CORCAN’s Offender Employability Skills Project addresses that problem by helping offenders prepare for employment as part of their rehabilitation.
