Parole

Parole is the conditional release of an offender that allows them to serve the remainder of their sentence in the community under supervision. There are two type of parole in Canada: day parole, and full parole. The purpose of day parole is to prepare the inmate for full parole or statutory release. The inmate is allowed to participate in community-based activities but must return to either a correctional institution or community residence in the evening. An inmate is eligible for day parole six months before they are eligible for full parole.

Full parole allows offenders to serve part of their sentence in the community under supervision. They are allowed to live in a private residence but must report regularly to a parole supervisor. An offender is eligible for full parole when they have served either one-third of their sentence or seven years, whichever is less. Those convicted of first degree murder are eligible after 25 years. Second degree murderers are eligible between 10 and 25 years into their sentences.

Day parole is granted much more frequently than full parole. In the fiscal year of 2018, 79.1 percent of day paroles were granted, while only 37.5 percent of full paroles were granted. In general, non-aboriginal offenders have been more likely to be granted parole over the last decade. Aboriginal offenders also serve more of their sentence, on average, than their non-Aboriginal counter parts.
