CSC Penitentiary Farms – Feasibility Study

In June 2016, CSC launched a feasibility study about re-establishing farm operations at the former penitentiary farms of Collins Bay and Joyceville institutions. On August 16, the Honourable Ralph Goodale, Minister of Public Safety and Emergency Preparedness, along with officials from the Correctional Service of Canada invited the community to share their views in person at a town hall meeting in Kingston, Ontario. Please see the news release for more details: Minister Goodale thanks Canadians for sharing their views about the future of Kingston area penitentiary farms.

We thank everyone who participated in the consultation. The consultation has now closed and we are working on a report on its findings. That report will be made public.
