Please note that avoid any health risks related to COVID-19, this Section meeting has been postponed. A notice will be sent out with the new date once details have been confirmed. 

Join us for this meeting at Nanaimo Correctional Centre ("NCC") for a tour of the Guthrie Therapeutic Community. Guthrie is a treatment program developed by B.C. Corrections in partnership with the John Howard Society.  The Guthrie Therapeutic Community is a 55-bed program separate from the rest of NCC.  The Guthrie program combines work, treatment, counselling and around-the-clock behavioural modelling to address the root causes of addiction and give offenders a chance at a new beginning. 

Attendees will tour the grounds and meet with the residents of Guthrie to learn about the program.  In addition, Joanne Falvai, the Chair of the Department of Criminology at Vancouver Island University, will also be in attendance to lead a presentation on the Inside-Out Program, which offers prison-based post-secondary academic courses to groups composed of both university students and incarcerated students.
