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.

Comic Book!
Dead Ball Specialist - EN cover (1).jpg

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's wonderfully successful parenting project is running across Canada. Shout out to our amazing funder Movember and wonderful partners across Canada!

Running now in federal prisons and provincial jails across the country with more sites to come!
