Thank you for your interest in adding your efforts to the important work of the Church Council on Justice and Corrections.

The CCJC is a national organization that operates out of downtown Ottawa. Our office is a dynamic hub of activity where volunteers have the opportunity to engage meaningfully with our work promoting a faith-based vision of compassionate justice. Depending on your skills and interests, there is a wide variety of ways for you to contribute to the CCJC – whether by taking the lead on an innovative project or by joining one of our committees to organize a large-scale event or publication. We also rely on skilled and dedicated volunteers to keep everything running smoothly around the office. Most volunteer work is undertaken at our Ottawa office, although select tasks can be taken on by volunteers located remotely.

Get Involved


As we reflect in these coming days upon the many blessings in our lives, may we consider those who have been impacted by the justice system - both victims and offenders. Many families are impacted by justice-involvement and this time of year can be hard for those who cannot be with their loved ones as a result.

CCJC puts justice that heals at the forefront of our mission and our vision to create positive change through restorative models of justice. Currently our work is focused on The Empathy Project, a victim-impact and empathy skills training program for incarcerated individuals.

Presently CCJC is developing a new curriculum for use in the Empathy Project. Two versions of the curriculum are in the process of being created. These curricula will be streamed to the specific needs of both men and women and will be created with 100% Canadian content as well as with a restorative justice context in mind. If this work interests you, we would be so grateful for your support.

As the season of giving is upon us, this Christmas, consider sharing empathy with someone in need by supporting The Empathy Project. We thank you for opening your hearts to this work.
