Summary

The information in this document is based on available statistics and data analysis, reports and interviews with staff of PSC, PBC and OCI. It shows that the experience of Aboriginal women in federal penitentiaries continues the marginalization of Aboriginal people and women experienced for generations. Issues of isolation and dislocation are commonplace for Aboriginal women across the continuum of federal corrections. Aboriginal women find themselves overrepresented in higher security classifications and overrepresented in Management Protocol status. As a group they are frequently denied access to culturally and gender appropriate programming, and they are underrepresented in gaining parole eligibility.
