About the Institution
Kent Institution is a maximum security facility located in Agassiz, British-Columbia. It shares a property with Mountain Institution. The institution is based on a courtyard design model where offender accommodations are direct observation living units.
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 one new 96-bed living unit is expected to be complete in 2012-2013. Delivery of correctional and rehabilitation programs is also being expanded.
