What is new/changed?

Commissioner's Directive 300 on "Real Property"

Why was the policy changed?

The CD was reviewed as part of the Task Force on Policy Review. It had recommended that the direction provided by the policy be transferred to a Real Property Management and Capital Planning Manual. The Assistant Commissioner Corporate Services, in consultation with the Policy Branch, determined that given the amount of assets managed by the Correctional Service of Canada and the requirement that it support the delivery of correctional programs, it was necessary to retain a CD in this area.

What is the purpose of the change?

To ensure guidance is provided in the area of management of real property to meet the requirements of government-wide changes in this area.

How was it developed?

The policy was amended by the National Headquarters Facilities Branch and consultation was undertaken with Regional Administrators, Technical Services, the Operational Planning Branch, Legal Services and the Union of Solicitor General Employees.


The Assistant Commissioner, Corporate Services is accountable for the management of the CSC real property in accordance with existing policies and standards.

Who will be affected by the policy?

CSC staff working at National Headquarters, Regional Headquarters and institutions who are responsible for real property activities.
