1. This category represents movement from federal custody to federal conditional release and includes provincial and territorial and federal offenders released on day parole or full parole, and federal offenders on statutory release. Offenders released on warrant expiry and other release types are excluded.
Notes: Due to missing data, Nunavut and the Northwest Territories have been excluded. Prior to 2008/2009, other temporary detention in British Columbia was captured under sentenced custody. Alberta uses a different counting methodology whereby an admission to custody is counted once, regardless of change in status. For instance, an individual who moves from remand to sentenced custody will be counted as one admission to remand and one admission to sentenced custody. This report has included Alberta's remanded later sentenced admissions in both the number of admissions to remand and then again in the number of admissions to sentenced custody, resulting in a higher number of admissions than that reported by the jurisdiction.
