This report prepared by the Alberta Civil Liberties Research Centre discusses the rights of adults (persons who are 18 years or older) who have been accused or convicted of crimes and are either being held in custody in Alberta jails or correctional institutions or being supervised in the community by correctional authorities (for example, those released on bail, parole or other forms of conditional release).
The Parole Board of Canada (PBC), as part of the criminal justice system, makes independent, quality conditional release and record suspension decisions and clemency recommendations. The Board contributes to the protection of society by facilitating as appropriate, the timely reintegration of offenders as law-abiding citizens.
This online video from the Parole Board of Canada (PBC) shows victims how a parole hearing works and directs victims to other Board information, such as their website and toll-free victim information line. The PBC believes victims should, if they choose, have a role in the conditional release process. This openness and transparency supports their public safety mandate.
