CoSA Has a New Facebook Page
Good News! On May 5, the Honourable Ralph Goodale, Minister for Public Safety and Emergency Preparedness, announced that $7.48 million in federal funding has been made available under the National Crime Prevention Strategy for the CoSA National Capacity Project. 


The project will aid CoSA sites in 14 communities across the country to help offenders accept accountability and responsibility for their actions as they complete their sentences and return to the community. Circles provide these former offenders with a weekly support network of trained staff and volunteers who assist and promote their safe and successful reintegration into the community.


In making the announcement, Mr. Goodale said:

"Reestablishing funding for this important Canadian-made program demonstrates our commitment to evidence-based criminal justice policy. This project will help reduce victimization and keep our communities safe by holding ex-offenders accountable for their actions and giving them the support they need to become responsible and productive members of society".

CoSA South Saskatchewan

All photos of people on this website are generic. The privacy of all program participants is taken very seriously.

CoSA SS is part of a Canada-wide network of CoSA centres and part of a growing international movement.

"It's almost

too simple:

They offered him friendship."


CoSA South Saskatchewan has created a new Facebook page to improve day-to-day and week-to-week communications with our supporters and the general public.

This website (cosass.ca) will continue to contain basic information about our programs, information on how to get involved, and reference information of various types for our volunteers and other people interested in restorative justice in general and circles of support and accountability in particular. We will continue to post news items of interest.

The advantages of also  having a Facebook page include the following:

  • It is easy for CoSA staff and volunteers to use as a blog.
  • It is easy to post photographs and videos.
  • It is easy for the public to post comments and ask questions.
  • We can create events and invite people to them.
Click on the Facebook button above to see our Facebook page. Don't hesitate to "like" the page.

Through Friendship, CoSA SS works with persons who have previously offended  sexually. These persons are referred to as "Core Members"
We seek to bridge the gap from fear and isolation of them moving into our communities, to one of hope and living a crime-free, productive life as neighbors and friends.
