BC Corrections Directions Magazine explores the entire spectrum of our mandate as seen through the eyes of the individuals under our care and supervision. The magazine offers a glimpse of what it’s like to move through the system and showcases the unique, varied and excellent work done every day by our staff across the province – in correctional centres and the community, and by those who develop and evaluate our programs and policies.
