The Community Chaplaincy of Quebec City (CCQ), with over two decades of experience, was founded in March 2000 as a charitable organization (NPO).


Its objective is to organize and offer, in collaboration with existing organizations, activities and services to promote the social reintegration of offenders and parolees.


It promotes the recruitment and training of skilled volunteers to achieve its objectives. It is made up of volunteers and peer helpers from faith-based organizations and other community groups who support the reintegration of offenders and their families into society. Chaplains and pastors are also involved. All are dedicated by personal commitment and a strong social consciousness.


The CCQ provides services under contract with Correctional Service Canada (CSC) for a maximum of 1,000 hours per year, while acting independently for services offered to offenders from the provincial correctional service (sentence 2 years minus 1 day) under surveillance or having completed their sentence (warrant expiry). At present, the percentage of offenders under federal surveillance is around 52%, and 48% are under provincial surveillance (probation or other) or have reached their warrant expiry date.
