1. Total remand excludes Prince Edward Island, Quebec and Saskatchewan.
2. Total sentenced custody excludes Prince Edward Island, Quebec, Saskatchewan, the Northwest Territories and Nunavut. The YCCS collects the median number of days served by open and secure custody, and not by total sentenced custody. These can not be summed to produce the median number of days served in sentenced custody.
3. Admission and release counts presented in this report comply with the nationally recognized definitions developed to provide comparability across jurisdictions. Alberta uses a different counting methodology which makes it difficult to compare its official counts to those produced by the Youth Custody and Community Services survey.
