Canadian Psychological Association Submission to the Standing Senate Committee on Legal and Constitutional Affairs on Bill C-10: Safe Streets and Communities Act.
The Canadian Psychological Association (CPA) has convened a special task force of forensic and correctional psychologists charged with reviewing and summarizing research into the determinants of criminal behavior and “what works” in the treatment of offenders. The paper focuses on key aspects of the legislation. These include;
- proposed amendments to the Criminal Code that introduce or increase mandatory minimum sentences, increase sentences lengths for some crimes, and add restrictions to conditional release,
- legislation about sexual offenders and sexual offenses involving children, and
- effective methods, or “what works”, to reduce crime – as will be further detailed in this paper, the overwhelming consensus of the literature is that treatment works whereas incarceration does not.
