About the Institution

Grand Valley Institution for Women is a multi-level security facility located in Kitchener, Ontario. The institution is based on a residential-women's multi-level design model where offender accommodations are residential houses, a residential-style living unit, and a direct observation living unit. It is one of five regional facilities for women across Canada.

The Institution provides a positive and supportive environment focused mainly on women's timely and safe reintegration.

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

Work is now underway to increase capacity at the Institution. Construction of 44-new accommodation spaces is expected to be complete in 2013-2014. Delivery of correctional and rehabilitation programs is also being expanded.
