The Justice Sector Constellation (JSC) is a collective impact initiative that brings together justice sector administration, service providers and stakeholders to address systemic issues within the justice sector; issues beyond the mandate and capacity of any one organization to address.

Below are several resources that the JSC has developed over the last couple of years:

  • Poverty & the Law Module: This module is free to take, and participants learn about poverty and the intersections with the law.
  • Post-release Journey Maps: Journey maps provide a visual representation of the process individuals can follow to find support and resources at transition points in life.
  • Child-minding Resource: This was created in response to the increasing presence of children at the Calgary Courts Centre. This infographic identifies childcare facilities near the Calgary Courts Centre that accept children on a drop-in basis. Childcare options allow individuals to be fully present as they attend to their legal matters while avoiding unnecessary adverse exposure to inappropriate or traumatizing experiences for their children.
