Calling out discrimination
in Canada’s prisons
The Commission continued to work on behalf of vulnerable prisoners: Indigenous women; people illegally in Canada; inmates with mental disabilities; trans inmates; and people being held in solitary confinement. Through mediation settlements, work with Correctional Service Canada, public messaging and Parliamentary appearances, the Commission continued to call for federal leadership and action to improve how vulnerable offenders are treated within the Canadian justice system.
Simplifying the complaint process
Over the past few years, the Commission has heard directly from its stakeholders and from individuals across Canada that its complaint process was too difficult, too complex, too intimidating.
