John Howard Canada will be creating a blog starting this fall.

Our intent is to bring together the many people and groups talking about reform of the criminal justice system in Canada and to create a place where people will want to come to stay informed of what is happening in this field.  We plan to include many different voices – prisoners and former prisoners, victims of crime, family members, people who work in and around the criminal justice system, researchers, policy analysts and others.

We will focus on John Howard’s priority areas but will also include material on other criminal justice issues.  We’ll connect the blog to our Facebook and Twitter feeds also, and will also link to other organizations doing similar work.

More soon.

Any comments, questions or suggestions may be addressed to
