Are you interested in making communities safer? Maybe you just want to hear more about what’s happening within and beyond Canada’s criminal justice system…

Become a Community Connector!

As a Community Connector, you will get access to info and opportunities related to current issues and initiatives that promote humane and informed policy, practice, and responsible leadership. This will be shared via SLSC’s monthly newsletter, Community Connections, which covers topics like:

  • SLSC’s recent advocacy & research efforts
  • milestones from SLSC’s member agencies
  • links to our new resources and blog posts
  • news, articles, and resources from other organizations
  • and, ways you can get involved

When you sign up, we will send you one email at the end of each month with the content listed above. On occasion, we may send an additional email, but we will do that as little as possible to avoid crowding your inbox.
