Report 3, Preparing indigenous offenders for release, of the Fall 2016 reports of the Auditor General of Canada: XC16-1/1-421-26E-PDF

"The mission of Correctional Service Canada (CSC) “is to ‘contribute to public safety by actively encouraging and assisting offenders to become law-abiding citizens, while exercising reasonable, safe, secure and humane control.” According to the OAG, one of CSC’s “main legislated responsibilities is to support the successful reintegration of offenders into the community.” “The Corrections and Conditional Release Act requires CSC to adopt correctional programs and policies that are responsive to Indigenous offenders’ unique needs.” In the fall of 2016, the OAG released a performance audit whose objective was to determine whether CSC “provided correctional interventions in a timely manner to Indigenous offenders to assist with their successful reintegration into the community.” On 15 February 2017, the House of Commons Standing Committee on Public Accounts (the Committee) held a hearing on this audit"--Introd., p. 1-2, 3.
