Policy and Advocacy Corrections Reform

Corrections Reform

SSO leads the Coalition on Reforming Segregation in Ontario's Correctional Institutions. The Coalition is made up of organizations and individuals interested in promoting mental health, health equity and restorative justice.
The Coalition will work to call attention to the damaging practice of segregation and to the immediate reforms needed to mitigate associated harms across provincial correctional facilities for incarcerated persons.
In addition, following the introduction of corrections legislation in early 2018, the Coalition will work to ensure that critical reforms from the Independent Advisor on Corrections Reform’s interim report are being implemented consistently across correctional facilities and are not undone if there is a change in government.

Coalition Members:
Dr. Michaela Beder
Criminalization and Punishment Education Project – University of Ottawa and Carleton University
Empowerment Council
John Howard Society of Ontario
Mothers Offering Mutual Support (MOMS)
Ontario Correctional Nurses’ Interest Group
