Investigation into the detention conditions of inmates serving intermittent sentences in Québec

In a special report released on March 21, 2018, the Québec Ombudsman spoke out against the detention conditions of people serving intermittent sentences in Québec correctional facilities.

“Our investigation brought into focus the urgent need to expose the problems encountered by detainees because of the massive reliance on intermittent sentences and to find concrete and feasible solutions to correct the situation,” said Ombudsperson Marie Rinfret.

Seventeen recommendations were made, most of them to the Ministère de la Sécurité publique du Québec and others to the Ministère de la Justice du Québec.
