Research & Policy

The John Howard Society of Alberta has produced a large collection of research and position papers on various criminal justice topics. We are currently in the process of adding recent documents to our online library.

We also have an extensive collection of older documents available on our Archives page. These documents may have outdated information and are therefore mainly of historical interest, but some contain general information that is still valid.

If there is a particular document you are looking for, we can probably send it to you. Please contact us for more information.

All documents are in PDF format except where otherwise indicated.
