Introduction to the Criminal Justice System

This course introduces students to the Canadian criminal justice system, its foundations, and the principles that govern it. Students will explore how the police, courts, and correctional system work together to establish and maintain safe communities; they will also learn that not all citizens benefit from the policies and practices of the criminal justice system. In addition, the course will consider the impact of the criminal justice system on Indigenous communities, newcomers to Canada, and other historically and currently marginalized populations. Students will examine key concepts such as police use of power, the over-incarceration of Indigenous people and people of colour, reforms within the justice system, and other topics.

Note: Restricted to Justice and Open Studies
