The television reception and distribution service inside an institution shall not exceed the service provided to the local
community, or which has been authorized by the Canadian Radio-Television and Telecommunications Commission.
Only Canadian Radio-Television and Telecommunications Commission approved services and local Canadian television channels
shall be distributed inside an institution. Foreign services which are not authorized by the Canadian Radio-Television and Telecommunications Commission shall not be offered to inmates.
The cost of projects to improve television reception to designated common areas within institutions, including master antenna
systems, or where cost-effective, cablevision or satellite receiving stations, will be paid by the Correctional Service of
Signal distribution systems to inmate cells will be included in construction of new institutions and may be installed in
institutions which do not have such a system currently. The Correctional Service of Canada will pay for the cost of signal
distribution systems to cells.
Where cablevision or satellite receiving stations have been selected as the most cost-effective method of obtaining a good
quality signal, and this signal is distributed to cells, the cost of the monthly service charges will be covered entirely by
the Inmate Welfare Fund.
