About the Institution

Joliette is a multi-level security women's facility, located in Joliette, Quebec.

Currently, the institution consists of 10 living units that can each house up to eight offenders. In addition, the Structured Living Environment can house up to eight inmates, while the Secure Unit is designed for inmates requiring more secure supervision, accommodating up to 10 maximum-security inmates.

As part of CSC's efforts to encourage inmates to become law-abiding citizens, CSC offers various national correctional programs.

Work is now underway to increase capacity at the Institution. Construction of a new 10-bed maximum-security unit is expected to be complete in 2013-2014. Four additional Structured Living Environment beds are also being constructed. Delivery of correctional and rehabilitation programs is also being expanded.
