Portsmouth Community Correctional Centre
Community Correctional Centres (CCC) are used to assist in offender rehabilitation by providing housing for those offenders released on Unescorted Temporary Absences, Work Release and Day Parole. CCC’s are also housing for offenders released on Full Parole, Statutory Release and Long Term Supervision Orders where the National Parole Board has imposed a Special Condition to reside.
On February 18, 2009, the Portsmouth CCC moved from its location on Portsmouth Avenue to Frontenac Institution’s Phoenix Wing on the property of Collins Bay Institution, as an interim measure while construction on a new facility can be completed. The new facility will allow CSC to continue its rehabilitation efforts with offenders by providing them housing, programming and support while also maintaining public safety.
This new facility will have a capacity for 40 beds, available space for program delivery, offices and visitation. While this new site is still in the planning phase, it will still be situated on the grounds of Collins Bay Institution, which is located at 1455 Bath Road, Kingston, Ontario. Construction will begin in November 2010 and will be completed January 2012.
