Status report on administrative segregation: PS84-71/2016E-PDF

“The Status Report on Administrative Segregation was conducted as part of Correctional Service Canada’s (CSC) 2015–2018 Risk-Based Audit Plan (RBAP). In CSC policy, administrative segregation is defined as “the separation of an inmate to prevent association with other inmates, when specific legal requirements are met, other than pursuant to a disciplinary decision.” The Corrections and Conditional Release Act (CCRA) lays out the purpose of administrative segregation, which is “to maintain the security of the penitentiary or the safety of any person by not allowing an inmate to associate with other inmates.” Concerns with administrative segregation, specifically possible non-compliance with legislative and internal requirements, have brought additional focus on the subject matter. As a result, CSC is working on a number of projects, including a renewal of the administrative segregation policy framework, to address many of the recommendations that have been made through external inquests, reports from the Office of the Correctional Investigator, internal reports, and others"--Executive summary, p. iv.
