Lightbulb Resources for Families in the Canadian Correctional System

I have endeavored to compile a list of resources for the Canadian Correctional system.
This list is by no means complete, and I hope to have a bit of assistance from you, my Canadian sisters and brothers, in posting a broad range of programs and resources available to Canadians who are affected by the Correctional system in any way.
I would like to make available- links and direction to various programs within Canada, including, but not limited to- incarceration; parole; re-entry; rehabilitation; family support; inmate health; children's welfare; community support...etc.

Please feel free to PM me with any further questions or information you may have.
I will be happy to post any helpful resources here in this thread.

I have noticed that there is a lot of Federal information but not so much provincial institution information and there is a huge difference...your loved one will not be getting any packages from home, phone cards with pin numbers - nope, you get a huge phone bill from collect calls

I had some links somewhere for some provincial resources I will see if I can track them down again. But thanks for this. I remember how utterly lost I felt in the beginning.

In my attempts to locate Provincial information, this is what I have found thus far:

http://www.conshelpingcons.com/canad...directory.html
Canadian Provincial Correctional Facilities

http://www.pssg.gov.bc.ca/corrections/
British Columbia Corrections Branch

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Provinc...ices_in_Canada
This may, hopefully, be a good link to exploring all Provincial correctional services.

I've found another link to Canadian Prison information.
The site is an older one, but the information included is still valuable.
Anyone who has an updated link to this type of info, please post in this thread.
Thanks.

If you look up the Alberta Government website and then check the Justice or Law links you can find all the addresses and phone numbers for all the Alberta Provincial Facilities.

This thread seems to be very outdated. Every link I have tried so far doesnt work.

If you happen to live in or near Calgary, there is an organization called Caring for Families that is a great support. We meet twice a month and are a nice group of people. Call Sandy at the John Howard Society 403-266-4566 or Moira at Mennonite Central Committee 403-275-6935 ext. 235
