Introduction

The majority of the tables in this document focus on the regional institutions (Nova, Joliette , Grand Valley , Okimaw Ohci Healing Lodge, Edmonton Institution for Women and Burnaby Correctional Center for Women). However, where appropriate, data is also included from Isabel McNeil ( Ontario ), Springhill Institution, Saskatchewan Penitentiary, Regional Reception Center , ( Quebec ) and Regional Psychiatric Centre, (Prairies).

Definitions

The statistics in this document are presented in two different formats: 1) at a point in time, and 2) over a period of time.

  1. at a point in time
    This measure is designed to illustrate a situation on a specific date. Each Sunday, CSC takes a "snapshot" of the data in OMS relating to the offenders in each institution across the country. This information is then stored separately from OMS and labeled as having been extracted from OMS on that Sunday's date. These "snapshots" can then be used to compare one institution or region to another at the same point in time. By comparing "snapshots", one point in time can be compared to other points in time on an institutional, regional or national level. These types of figures are dynamic in that the numbers will change with each new "snapshot". Incarcerated and community populations are often presented this way.
  1. over a period of time
    This measure is designed to illustrate an accumulation between two dates. When the OMS data from each institution (as well as the archives) is amalgamated it is possible to use these types of measures to make comparisons and identify trends between one institution or region and another. By adjusting the date parameters, it is possible to use these measures to compare an institutional, a regional, or the national view from one time period to another. These types of figures are generally static in that they rarely change from one "snapshot" amalgamation to the next. Offender admissions and releases are regularly presented this way.

Other :

Most of the tables provide information on the total population and then a more specific breakdown of the Aboriginal vs Non-Aboriginal populations.

Generally, the numbers and percentages of the specific Aboriginal/Non-Aboriginal tables add up to the total provided for the total population.

  • The time requirements for the completion of the Correctional Plan vary dependant upon the length of sentence. There is a 70-day requirement for sentences of 4 years or less and a 90-day requirement for sentences greater than 4 years (including indeterminate sentences). In both cases, the time frame is measured from the offender's admission date to the date the Correctional Plan is locked. The tables above show the results based upon this standard.
