Policy requires that those confined to segregation be provided with regular reviews in which their continuing placement must be justified.All are to receive regular nursing visits and individuals with mental illness must receive regular assessments from physicians.According to ministry policy, segregation is "an area …designated for the placement of inmates who are to be housed separate from the general population."[1] In practice, this means confining individuals to a six by nine foot cell for 22 or more hours a day, with little human interaction.The goal is to develop a progressive and individualized correctional services system that improves community safety, relies less on custody and focuses more on rehabilitation and reintegration.Current segregation practices are in conflict with this approach.Correctional authorities do not have the luxury of deciding who their clients will be or for how long they will stay.Others make those decisions, and many of those decision-makers have little true understanding of corrections.

This focus in no way implies that victim issues are not important or less so than those of offenders.

The work of the Independent Review Team is guided by principles: restraint in the use of state authority, the use of least restrictive measures while ensuring safety and a commitment to human rights. To inform this report, the Review Team met with stakeholders, read thousands of pages of records, interviewed staff, attended briefings, visited institutions and became familiar with the academic and professional literature on segregation and corrections.

Corrections professionals in Ontario, British Columbia, Alberta and those working within the federal system across Canada were generous with their time.

Non-governmental organizations and members of the public contacted the Review Team to offer their guidance and present their concerns.

Voices of inmates and their family members were also heard.
