Aboriginal Community Development Officers

Job Profile

Aboriginal Community Development Officers (ACDOs) are integral to the Correctional Service of Canada’s (CSC’s) strategic priority of enhancing the programming and support it provides to assist Aboriginal offenders in their rehabilitation and successful reintegration into the community.

ACDOs work with Aboriginal communities, in both urban settings and on reserves, to ensure that effective support systems are in place for federal offenders preparing to return to an Aboriginal community. In so doing, ACDOs also work to build trusting and respectful relationships with Aboriginal communities, and ensure that members of Aboriginal communities are consulted before an offender returns to the community.

As an ACDO, you will notify leaders of Aboriginal communities when an offender is applying for parole and has indicated they would like to return to the community.

Working with the offender, CSC case management staff, Aboriginal community members and Aboriginal organizations, you will also develop release plans based on traditional Aboriginal community practices. The release plan may include partnerships with federal, provincial, or territorial governments, as well as Aboriginal organizations. ACDOs then facilitate, coordinate and assist the implementation of these plans, while ensuring they meet the needs of the community and the offender.

You will work closely with other CSC professionals including Parole Officers, Psychologists, Correctional Officers, Primary Workers, Kimisinaws, Correctional Managers, Elders, and Aboriginal Liaison Officers to ensure all relevant information regarding Aboriginal offender and their release is shared.
