The Division operates correctional centres with various levels of security and control for individuals awaiting trial or serving a provincial custody sentence of up to two years less a day. Correctional programs address inmates’ thought patterns, behaviour and lifestyles that are known to contribute to crime. Correctional centres provide programs and additional services that balance risks and needs, ensure links with community corrections based on common core programming and integrated case management, communicate with stakeholders and participate as a pro-active partner in our criminal justice system.
