Having operated in the Province of New Brunswick since 1953, The John Howard Society of New Brunswick through partnerships, advocacy and reform has established a well-known and highly regarded reputation in the field of crime prevention and social justice – contributing to a just, peaceful and safe society.
We promote and support healthy and safe communities by engaging in activities that address the determinants and consequences of crime.
For the past several years, The John Howard Society of New Brunswick has reconnected and built new relationships with local and regional networks across the province enhancing the society’s capacity in rural, First Nations, Anglophone and Francophone communities to oversee the development of a social and criminal justice development process customized to the emerging needs of each individual community.

What We Do
The provincial society promotes contracts involving John Howard local and regional branches, affiliates and networks including provincial wide services through its partnerships with local, provincial and federal governments.
The society’s alliance with experts in academia and federal/provincial strategies and committees allows the agency to provide viable solutions to identified community needs in such areas as education, employment, counselling, skill development, professional services and residential housing for youth, adults and families experiencing barriers to sustainable housing. With the setting up of the John Howard Atlantic Research & Innovation Centre (ARIC) the provincial branch has greatly enhanced its research and innovation capacity.
