Canadian Families and Corrections Network (CFCN) focuses on families, children, and friends who have someone they care about in jail. Our mission is “to build stronger and safer communities by assisting families affected by criminal behavior, incarceration, and reintegration”. Look around our website to see how we help by offering storybooks, information booklets, groundbreaking research, unique programs, and strong policy development to strengthen the family unit and the lives of everyone in it.

A Contest!

We are trying to keep families posted about Covid-19 facts. Please follow us on Facebook or Twitter (see links below)

for the latest information.

Comic Book!

Have you seen our Comic 'Dead Ball Specialist'? It's the first of it's kind in Canada!


A Dead Ball in soccer is just like incarceration - something that pauses you for a minute until you get back on your feet. How will you cope?

This Ethnocultural resource that we can all learn from would not be possible without the Correctional Service of Canada. Thank you!

Parole Book!
FCJ Vol 19 No 1

Families and friends frequently ask Canadian Families and Corrections Network through our toll-free line, our Visiting Resource Centres, or our Family Support Groups, about how they can help a person who is serving time in prison with the parole process. This booklet is a direct result of those questions. We hear you.

This document would not be possible without a generous grant from The Law Foundation of Ontario. Thank you!


Canadian Families and Corrections Network is launching its newest parenting project with The Movember Foundation and partners across Canada!

Running now in Dorchester Penitentiary NB, Archambault Institution QB, Collins Bay Institution ON, Saskatchewan Penitentiary, SK and Pacific Institution BC. 

Do you know a dad there who might want to build a great relationship with their children? Read more about the project here!
