Health Services Sector Correctional Service of Canada (CSC)

The production of this surveillance report would not be possible without the collaboration of the Regional Managers Public Health and Regional Directors of Health Services. They are responsible for the coordination and management of regional surveillance data. Further, a special acknowledgement has to be made to the nurses and Chiefs of Health Services within the federal penitentiaries across Canada for their efforts and commitment to surveillance data reporting.

Workplace Wellbeing Correctional Service of Canada (CSC)

The national, regional, and institutional members of the occupational health and safety teams work to maintain the health of staff working in the institutions and in the regions, including staff tuberculosis screening. In addition, Occupational Health and Safety at CSC is responsible for training staff on infectious disease issues, a critical part of prevention and control of all communicable disease in Canadian penitentiaries.

Centre for Communicable Diseases and Infection Control, Public Health Agency of Canada (PHAC)

This document was prepared with the assistance, advice, and support of staff at the Centre for Communicable Diseases and Infection Control (CCDIC), Public Health Agency of Canada (PHAC). The inter-departmental cooperation and collaboration between CSC and PHAC on a number of public health issues is a reflection of the importance of correctional health in the broader scope of public health in Canada.

Public Health and Occupational Safety Program Health Canada (HC)

The collection of tuberculosis (TB) data among staff at CSC is but one component of the occupational health service provided by the Public Health and Occupational Safety Program (PHOSP) nurses at Health Canada. Coordinating the complex logistics of TB prevention and control for staff in federal penitentiaries is an essential function of a successful program.
