Our Team

Dr. John E. Charlton started JCharlton Publishing Ltd in 2009 while undertaking his doctorate degree. The aim, goal and focus of his social justice publishing endeavours is a direct result of experiences gained progressing through The Salvation Army shelter system as a front-line worker in Ottawa, to eventually offering individual and group addiction and mental health counselling, again as an employee of The Salvation Army, to individuals in and around Vancouver’s lower eastside.
