CSSC Expert Working Group Review

This invitation only event is to discuss findings of our report concerning Canada's children with incarcerated parents and to have a conversation about the implications for more effectively recognizing and supporting this vulnerable group of children in BC.

Working in collaboration with faculty from UFV’s School of Criminology and Criminal Justice and School of Social Work, the Centre for Safe Schools and Communities is developing a best practices model for responding to children who have a parent in prison. This is occurring through the completion of a detailed, applied literature and scoping review to examine current tools and strategies used in BC and other jurisdictions in Canada and internationally to intervene and/or prevent the cycle of criminal justice contact for children of an incarcerated parent, and to reduce their risk of involvement with Child Protection Services. This study will culminate in a series of recommendations and propose a model specifically for the Fraser Valley, while having wider applicability for BC and Canada as well.
