The Corrections and Conditional Release Act (CCRA) was enacted in Canada in 1992. It provided the legislative foundation of federal corrections and conditional release. The Act mandated a Parliamentary review in five years. That review began with the release of this consultation paper. The document provided key information on key aspects of the CCRA based on twenty four evaluation studies conducted by the Ministry. Through release of the paper, the Ministry invited interested Canadians to share their views on how the CCRA is working. The consultation paper is structured into these broad areas, around which public comment was invited: public safety and integration; openness and accountability; fair processes and equitable decisions; special groups with special needs; and the Office of the Correctional Investigator.
