Visiting a loved one inside? A handbook for people visiting a prisoner at an adult correctional facility in Ontario

This document is intended to provide information to Ontarians who are or have been in conflict with the law, and their families. It is divided into two parts:

  • Prison Visits: What to expect. This includes such questions as, Should I visit a friend or family member in prison? Should I bring a child? How can I prepare a child for a visit? What kind of security is there? How can I stay in touch if I can't visit?
  • Prison Directory, covering provincial and federal prisons
