About the HSJCC Network
The Human Services and Justice Coordinating Committee (HSJCC) Network was first established to better coordinate resources and services, and plan more effectively for people with complex human service needs who come into contact with the justice system. The HSJCC Network is a cooperative effort of the Ministries of the Attorney General, Children, Community and Social Services, Health, and the Solicitor General.
The HSJCC Network is made up of 39 Local Committees, 14 Regional Committees and the Provincial HSJCC. Each committee is a voluntary collaboration between social service organizations, community mental health and addictions organizations and partners from the justice sector.
The Provincial HSJCC functions as a planning body, supporting the efforts of the Local and Regional HSJCCs. This committee identifies and addresses provincial service and policy issues, identifies solutions to systemic problems, makes recommendations to the Ontario ministries and other bodies, promotes consistency of approach and shares information across Ontario. The Provincial HSJCC and broader network is supported by the HSJCC Secretariat, a small staff housed at the Canadian Mental Health Association, Ontario Division.
