Recently, Canada’s Office of the Correctional Investigator released a document looking at statistical trends in Administrative Segregation over the past 10 years. This document was of personal interest given my thesis topic: The impact of programming in administrative segregation. However, it was the first paragraph that outlined the changes in the general inmate population that caught my eye.
I’ve created an infographic to illustrate these statistics, and I hope you will share this information. We urgently need to have an informed national discourse about the criminal justice system in Canada.
BTW: If you’re wondering, Canada’s total population grew by 10.64% over the last 10 years.
