Investigator Discusses Report on Sexual Violence in Prisons

Public Safety and National Security – November 2, 2020 – Part 1:

Canada’s Correctional Investigator Ivan Zinger briefs the committee on his office’s annual report. Zinger highlights two national investigations featured in the report: one on sexual coercion and violence in federal prisons, and another one on learning behind bars. The annual report confirms that sexual violence is “a pervasive but underreported problem in federal prisons,” and that Canada is falling behind in providing offenders with skills training and learning opportunities.
