Nature of Requirements:
The following is a summary of the statement of work for this requirement.
The Correctional Service of Canada (CSC) has a requirement to provide Faith Community Reintegration services across Canada through the provision of a range of services and activities that facilitate the transition and reintegration of individuals back into the community in their support of offender reintegration plans and program goals.
Faith Community Reintegration Projects (FCRPs) are an integrated, post-release component of the continuum of care as they align with CSC’s mandate for public safety through the provision of a range of services and activities that facilitate the transition and reintegration of individuals back into the community in their support of offender reintegration plans and program goals.
FCRPs bridge offender reintegration goals to the mandates of various faith-based organizations which offer religious and/or spiritual services (and may include practical support) to offenders after incarceration.
Communities of faith typically offer many diverse, faith-based, pro-social activities to the public that foster a sense of belonging while contributing to spiritual and religious growth. Offender involvement in these activities offers a direct resource to mitigate identified risk factors.
FCRPs facilitate and support the unique contribution of faith communities toward a holistic approach to safe and restorative reintegration practices.
Multiple contracts in each region may be awarded as a result of this Request for Proposal (RFP). Interested bidders may submit a proposal for one or more Locations/Cities identified in the RFP.
Contribute to CSC’s mandate to support successful offender reintegration following their release from CSC institutions through:
Bridge building between offenders and their religious and spiritual community groups;
Liaising with parole, justice organizations and faith communities;
Developing faith community capacity to engage with offenders;
Assisting offenders to become contributing members of society
