The Corrections & Community Justice Division (CCJD) educates professionals in the field of justice and public safety.
Our division was established as part of the Justice Institute of British Columbia in 1978. CCJD provides new hire and professional development for two key ministries in the Government of British Columbia.
- Ministry of Justice (Corrections Branch & Family Justice Services Division)
- Ministry of Children and Family Development (Youth Justice Services)
CCJD provides basic training, ongoing development and leadership training to Adult Correctional Officers and Adult Probation Officers who work with adult offenders in provincial institutional and community settings, to manage the risk they pose to the public and support their rehabilitation.
CCJD educates Family Justice Counsellors to assist families experiencing separation and divorce.
