Foreign Nationals: Needs Identification - Meeting with Foreign National Federally Sentenced Women

Introduction

According to the census of incarcerated women conducted on July 13, 1994, there are 25 Federally Sentenced Women (FSW) who are considered foreign nationals.1 There are 23 housed in the Ontario region, 1 in the Atlantic and 1 in the Pacific. Although this group is small it is, nevertheless, important to examine their specific needs and concerns to insure that they are met in the new facilities.
