About the Federal Reintegration Program

Our Federal Reintegration Worker Program provides support to individuals who are federally incarcerated and nearing their transition to the community. Staff assist with release planning, and help service users identify and connect with services that meet their individual needs and goals.


Reintegration workers focus primarily on one-to-one support, and provide information on a variety of areas including:

  • Housing
  • Filing taxes
  • Applying for identification
  • Employment and education opportunities
  • Connecting to community supports and programs delivered by Connective and other local organizations


Reintegration workers also provide information on the rights and responsibilities of people who are incarcerated, and work to reduce the number of barriers faced by individuals before their release.


Working in collaboration with both Correctional Service of Canada staff and resources in the community, the reintegration program strives to bridge the gap that exists between individuals’ needs and ability to access services before release to meet those needs.


If you are looking for this service in another location in BC or the Yukon, please contact us to connect with a Connective partner in your community.

  • Provide release planning and community reintegration services to assist individuals in identifying support services such as treatment programs, housing, and additional support for community release
  • Provide vital links and referrals to resources that will continue to assist individuals to build life skills and problem-solving skills in their community
