Warning This Web page has been archived on the Web.

66. It is recommended that each CAC prepare an annual report containing a review of the past year's activities, an assessment of the effectiveness of the committee's monitoring of crisis situations where the safety of staff and/or inmates was clearly at risk and a statement of the needs of the committee in order to carry out their duties in the coming year. The report would be submitted to the Regional Deputy Commissioner, the Correctional investigator, the head of the institution and to the community agencies and individuals involved in public policy relating to community safety and prisoner rehabilitation.

CSC'S RESPONSE:

At present, CACs are encouraged to prepare an Annual Report based on the past year's activities. The requirement for an Annual Report for each CAC will be included in a revised Resource Manual for Citizen Advisory Committees together with guidelines for the completion of the report.

The present distribution of the CAC Annual Report is to the Warden, the Regional Deputy Commissioner and the Director General, Public Participation and Consultation. The distribution will be expanded to include the Correctional Investigator and the community agencies and individuals involved in public policy relating to community safety and prisoner rehabilitation.

CSC will amend the Resource Manual by the Fall of 1999, to include a specific requirement to produce an Annual Report together with guidelines for completion and distribution.
