Our Mission

NAACJ enhances the capacity of member organizations to contribute to a humane, fair, equitable and effective justice system.


It does this by:

  • Contributing to the education of its member organizations, other organizations from the governmental and voluntary sector and the general public through activities that share and generate knowledge, information, ideas and values, in relation to current and emerging criminal justice issues.

  • Contributing to the capacity of the member organizations to carry out their purposes through activities that share and generate expertise; serving as a catalyst for action by member agencies; and, providing collective support for actions undertaken by individual member agencies where feasible.

  • Supporting the activities of its member organizations in the development of policy related to criminal justice by promoting the role and importance of the member organizations in consultation and policy fora with the federal government.
