I strongly support the Province’s decision to start from scratch and build a new multi-purpose holistic correction facility in the City of Ottawa. I am pleased to see that the Province will be implementing a correctional services environment anchored in evidence-based decision-making, and will address how best to serve Ontario’s diverse inmate population.

The new facility will be instrumental in the rehabilitation and reintegration of those individuals who are in the correctional system’s care and custody.

I am also pleased to see that the Province will be updating the legislation to help improve outcomes and clearly set the goals for reform and treatment for inmates.

The City of Ottawa looks forward to collaborating with the Province and assisting with all planning requirements.
