Effective, just and humane responses to the causes and consequences of crime



Essentially, a halfway house is a community-based residential facility (CRF) that serves as a place of transition for offenders who are in the process of returning to live normal lives back within the community at large. These offenders are usually still under custodial care by Corrections Services Canada (CSC) or the Parole Board of Canada (PBC). It is therefore a conditional release, which allows some offenders to continue to serve the balance of their sentence outside of the institution.
