Ontario To Hire 2000 New Correctional Officers

Hires Will Support Transformation, Help Ensure Staff And Inmate Safety

Queens Park - The province will hire 2,000 correctional officers over the next three years to increase staffing levels at Ontario’s correctional facilities, enhance access to rehabilitation and reintegration programming, strengthen mental health supports and improve staff and inmate safety.

Yesterday Yasir Naqvi, Minister of Community Safety and Correctional Services, announced the province’s hiring commitment on the first day of training for 140 correctional officers with the Ontario Correctional Services College.

The province’s commitment to increase hiring will ensure that staffing levels grow beyond normal turnover and retirement. Ontario will also continue to promote diversity within Correctional Services by targeting recruitment to ensure that correctional officers are reflective of the diverse communities they serve.

Adding correctional officers and upgrading correctional facilities across the province is a key part of the government’s transformation of Ontario’s correctional system to build safer communities.
