Our History

Edmonton John Howard Society (EJHS) is a non-profit organization that has served the Edmonton community for over 50 years.

Who is John Howard?

The organization takes its name and spirit from the 18th century humanitarian John Howard (1726-1790), whose name has become a symbol of humane consideration for incarcerated individuals.

Board Members

Edmonton John Howard Society's policies are directed by a volunteer Board of Directors whose members represent a cross section of the community and diverse areas of expertise and interest. The Board has a legal and corporate authority and responsibility for the agency's operation, and links with other organizations.
