Annotation: This report covers investigations conducted by the Office of the Solicitor General of Canada regarding problems of supervision of inmates upon release from penitentiaries on temporary absence, day parole, parole, or mandatory supervision for 1988-1989.
Abstract: It explains the 1988 amendment that states the exclusion of problems under the jurisdiction of the National Parole Board and includes the full text of the mandate and the amended version in an appendix. In addition, it defines the organization and its current operational status providing statistical information on complaints according to category, month, and region as well as inmate population, institutional visits, inmate interviews, and disposition of complaints.
