Effective Options for Post-incarceration Accommodation

Proj. #:4744
Description: At present prisoners released from federal jail will have some form of accommodation plan as part of their parole conditions. Such a system does not exist for those being released from provincial prisons or released from custody because they were found innocent. For those released under these circumstances, who often no longer have access to their previous accommodation there are few housing options across the region. This research would look into how the needs of this population have been met in other parts of Ontario and assess the need for accommodation planning across the region.
