1. Due to a system change, data from British Columbia for the category 'other temporary detention' is not available as of April 1, 2005. Therefore, comparisons with the previous years should be made with caution.
2. This category represents movement from federal custody to federal conditional release and includes provincial and territorial and federal offenders on day parole and full parole, and federal offenders on statutory release. Offenders released on warrant expiry and other release types are excluded.
