Welcome to The John Howard Society of Canada

Effective: Our sixty-five offices across Canada deliver best-practice services to pro-socially integrate persons at the end of their sentence and prevent people from coming into conflict with the law in the first place.

Just: Our policy and position papers and presentations advocate for legislation that accords with principles of fundamental justice.

Humane: A large and growing body of peer-reviewed science argues that punishment does not make people more pro-social - and that it often makes them worse.
