OTTAWA, ON – Canada’s federal and provincial governments should promote jobs and employment as a way to reduce crime in our communities. That recommendation comes from Curbing Crime with Employment: Exploring Work as Crime Prevention for Canadians with Criminal Records, a new report from non-partisan think tank Cardus. The report’s key finding is that there is evidence of a two-way relationship between crime and employment—criminality can make it harder for someone to find work, while having a job can also help steer someone away from crime.
