EDUCATION & CAREER FAIR

It’s nothing like TV: Women in BC Corrections

Christine Bootsma had a lot to learn when she started work as a BC correctional officer at the young age of 24. The first lesson? Don’t believe everything you see on TV. “When people think of correctional facilities, what does everyone go to? ‘Oh, is it like Orange is the New Black?’” Bootsma says, laughing. “It’s nothing like TV.” Instead, what Bootsma found after beginning her career as a correctional officer, was work where she could connect and build trust with inmates, and in the process help them be successful in their post-incarceration lives. Ten years later, she has moved up the ranks to a position as an Assistant Deputy Warden at the Nanaimo Correctional Centre. “There’s so much growth and opportunity to advance yourself if you put in the work and you are passionate about changing lives,” says Bootsma. New officers welcome That opportunity is something BC Corrections’ Adult Custody Division is hoping to provide to more people over the coming months, as it doubles the number of new officers it typically hires – offering meaningful careers for men and women with the skills and personal qualities needed in today’s peace officers. “Being a correctional officer with BC Corrections is not about being aggressive or showing tough behavior. It’s about emotional maturity, being fair and having great communication skills,” says Stephanie Macpherson, Provincial Director, BC Corrections. “Many women and men who have raised kids have effectively developed these transferrable skills. We have many excellent female and male officers who previously

worked in the service industry and are now some of our most effective officers because they interact very well with inmates,” Macpherson says. “If someone can handle impatient and frustrated customers at a bar or a coffee shop, those same skills will help them manage an inmate in a living unit. “Our staff truly cares about helping those who have found themselves in custody. They want to make a difference and have a positive influence on these men and women. We firmly believe our officers are so successful because they are such strong role models.” Bootsma says that women in particular should consider applying for the positions available, because they have played such an integral mentorship role in her own time as an officer. “I wouldn’t be here if it wasn’t for the women in my life who helped me when I first started,” she says. Personal and professional rewards There are personal rewards, too. In particular, the success of the Storybook Dads program, spearheaded by Bootsma and the John Howard Society of British Columbia, has been a source of pride. The program allows inmates to read a children’s story book and have it recorded; the story book and recording is then mailed to their child, who gets to hear their dad read to them. “It was really cool reading the letters from the inmates and seeing the gratitude from their families,” Bootsma says. “Even though they’re far away, they’re still with them.” Working with BC Corrections has allowed Bootsma to further her education through the BC Government Pacific Leaders Scholarships for Public Servants. “It allowed me to go back to school and finish my degree, which was pretty awesome.”

Located in Brentwood Bay, The Butchart Gardens, has been enthralling visitors for over 114 years with its stunning 22ha (55acres) of floral display gardens. The Gardens welcome over a million people from around the world each year. Designated as a National Historic Site of Canada in 2004, The Gardens are still owned and operated by the family and today comprise several major gardens, including the Sunken Garden, Rose Garden, Japanese Garden, Italian Garden, the Concert Lawn, and the Ross Fountain. Open every day of the year, there is something in every season for visitors to enjoy. In Spring, hundreds of thousands of flowering bulbs along with flowering shrubs and trees, create a show of unparalleled beauty. Summer at The Gardens features Night Illuminations from June 15th – September 15th. As dusk falls, thousands of lights of varying intensity and colour, give a magical glow to the shrubs, trees and flower beds. Each summer evening the Concert Lawn stage comes alive with a variety of performing artists. Boat tours on one of four electric boats allow the visitor to enjoy a 45-minute tour exploring the history and wildlife of Tod Inlet and the local waters of Brentwood Bay. Firework Saturdays, July through the Labour Day weekend, provide a chance to experience a pyrotechnic show choreographed to music, considered to be one of the most extravagant firework displays in North America. In Autumn a perennial parade of red, russet and golden maples make their mark at The Gardens. It’s the best time to visit the tranquility of the Japanese Garden before winter arrives. In, November, visitors can book a Greenhouse Tour to a behind the scenes look at some of the production greenhouses. The Magic of Christmas season, from December 1 – January 6, visitors enjoy the tradition of the season with the Twelve Days of Christmas displays tucked throughout The Gardens. The outdoor ice rink adds an extra holiday experience to the lighting extravaganza. Traditional Carollers and Festive Brass perform every night during the season. Year round, visitors can enjoy the Rose Carousel, the only carousel on Vancouver Island, with a menagerie of 30 hand-carved animals. The Seed & Gift Store features gifts and souvenirs including hand packaged seeds and one-of-a-kind items made by local artisans. A visit to The Gardens is complemented with a dining experience.
