Introducing our new Provincial HSJCC members: The John Howard Society of Ontario and Justice for Children and Youth
The Provincial HSJCC has recently welcomed two new members to its table. Representatives from the John Howard Society of Ontario and Justice for Children and Youth will be bringing their respective expertise to the Provincial Committee this fall, increasing the table’s capacity to serve our priority populations. In this webinar, our new members will provide a brief overview of their organizations with a focus on their project work as it relates to the Provincial HSJCC’s priorities. This webinar is a wonderful opportunity to learn more about these organizations and the issues they address.
