Western Canada

The map above represents the correctional facilities in the region that present current and potential locations for our regional ministry. There are a growing number of opportunities for new partnerships to serve in and around these locations.

PFC is thrilled about the momentum that is continuing to build throughout Western Canada in both British Columbia and Alberta.

 

British Columbia

PFC is active in 18 federal and provincial correctional facilities throughout the province of BC through the Angel Tree Christmas program. Stuart Tisdale has served as the regional coordinator for the program, and has done a great job mobilizing local church partners to minister to the children and families of those incarcerated through this program.

PFC has active in-prison chapters in two federal institutions in the Lower Mainland. The Angel Tree Christmas, Camping and PenPal programs are also active in most institutions throughout the province.

Alberta

In Alberta, PFC’s ministry efforts have historically been centered on the correctional facilities in Calgary and the surrounding areas. However, PFC has seen a breakthrough in Edmonton. PFC now has teams from local churches facilitating PFC’s The Journey program in both the Edmonton Institute for Women and Edmonton Institution. PFC is actively recruiting individuals to join these in-prison teams to better serve the prisoners through our programs. With four other correctional facilities in the Edmonton area, PFC is also recruiting more individuals to be equipped to expand PFC in-prison programming into these institutions, and is also exploring the possibility of opening an office in Edmonton in 2019. There are also opportunities in 2019 for teams from local churches to facilitate PFC in-prison programs at Lethbridge Correctional, Bowden Institution, and in the north at Grande Prairie Institution, and Peace River Correctional.
