|Students gain the knowledge and skills required to work with at-risk and offender populations in a variety of institutional and community correctional programs that operate within and adjacent to the justice system. A common first-year with the Protection, Security and Investigation and Police Foundations programs allows students the opportunity to transfer between programs after the first year of study, while gaining an understanding of criminal justice in Canada.
Second year courses incorporate the interpersonal, problem-solving, counselling and case management skills required of the profession to ensure the protection of the public and successful rehabilitation and reintegration of offenders. Students complete a field placement at a professional community or custody based justice agency that supports a transition to the profession.
|These courses are intended as guidelines. Speak to your guidance counsellor to see what courses are offered at your school.
Applicants are required to have an OSSD or equivalent with Grade 12 English (C or U).
|Additional Admission Requirements:
Placement agencies require an up-to-date clear criminal reference check and vulnerable sector check prior to going out on placement. Students should obtain their criminal reference three months prior to placement; checks conducted earlier may not be considered current. As some jurisdictions require longer lead-time for processing, please check with the program coordinator to ensure you allow for sufficient turn-around time. It is the student's responsibility to provide the completed document prior to placement start.
