1. Other includes admissions for provincial, territorial and municipal offences.
2. In Newfoundland and Labrador, remand admission data exclude remands involving short periods of incarceration as these are managed by the Royal Canadian Mounted Police (RCMP). This may partly explain the higher proportion of admissions for violent offences observed by this province.
Notes: Percentages exclude admissions where most serious offence is not known. Percentages may not add up to 100 due to rounding.
