  • Serving out time on Federal sentences
  • Found not criminally responsible by order of the Yukon Review Board
  • On immigration holds

The goals of the Whitehorse Correctional Centre are to:

  • Provide a safe and secure environment for staff and inmates
  • Encourage inmates to take responsibility for their actions and actively earn their way back into the community
  • Minimize the detrimental effects of confinement
  • Provide inmates with access to educational, work, recreational and treatment programs that reduce their risk of recontact
  • Provide inmates with opportunities to develop and maintain healthy, supportive family and community relationships
