1. Excludes intermittent sentences.
2. Alberta uses a different counting methodology whereby an admission to custody is counted once, regardless of change in status. As such, in 2008/2009 Alberta reported 13,767 remand admissions; 10,203 remanded later sentenced admissions, and; 8,306 sentenced only admissions. CCJS methodology counts an admission as movement from one status in correctional services to another. 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.
3. Includes residents of Nunavut held under an exchange of service agreement.
4. Excludes Prince Edward Island, Alberta and Nunavut.
