A life sentence is a sentence of life-imprisonment with different parole ineligibility periods depending on the age of the offender and the seriousness of the offense.

An indeterminate sentence is a sentence applied to a person considered a dangerous offender likely to be a continued threat to the community if released. Parole review occurs after 7 years and every 2 years after that.
