NATIONAL POSTCARD CAMPAIGN

The Canadian government is introducing for-profit prison farms focused on industrial goat dairy for commercial sale.

In 2019, concerned citizens and prisoners across Canada mailed 23,000 postcards to the Minister of Public Safety calling for ethical, environmental, evolved prison farms. This included the participation of countless individuals and more than 130 Postcard-A-Day Volunteers. 

In 2021, following the publication of our Prison Farm Report and public pressure including our 50,000 signature petition, the Correctional Service of Canada announced the “temporary pause” of its Prison Industrial Goat Farm.

Thank you to everyone who helped send the message that prison farms should do no harm
