This series of handbooks are produced by the Canadian Association of Elizabeth Fry Societies (CAEFS). They explain the rights women have while in prison, (federal and provincial) and while out on conditional release, and discusses some of the ways women prisoners can exercise their rights and avoid having them restricted further. Another purpose of the handbooks is to aid in the training of prisoner advocates inside and outside prison. Handbooks for women in provincial jails are available for New Brunswick, Ontario, Quebec, British Columbia, Saskatchewan. The handbooks are also available in French.
