Growth and Renewal

Infrastructure Renewal at the Correctional Service of Canada

The Correctional Service of Canada (CSC) is investing in new infrastructure to better manage a complex and diverse offender population. These investments will lead to safer, more secure penitentiaries and ultimately enhance public safety.

CSC is building new living units in many of its existing institutions and expects to add more than 2,700 accommodation spaces to men's and women's penitentiaries across the country in the coming years. The work now under way at facilities across the country is about more than bricks and mortar.

For example, CSC is expanding delivery of its correctional, education and work programs to assist offenders in their rehabilitation.

CSC is also hiring additional staff, where necessary, and is working with community partners to ensure offenders in the community are effectively supervised. The multi-faceted approach CSC is taking will allow it to contribute to Canadians' safety and security.
