From: Parole Board of Canada

Non-violent offences include Schedule II offences (drug offences) set out in the CCRA and Non-Scheduled offences.

Revocation for breach of conditions – a positive intervention, which reduces the risk of reoffending. It includes revocation with outstanding charges.

Revocation with offence – a negative end to the supervision period, which results in a new conviction. A supervision period can also end by becoming inoperative. Parole can become inoperative if an offender who is on conditional release (day parole or full parole) receives an additional sentence for an offence under a federal act, and the day on which the offender is eligible for parole is later than the day he/she received the additional sentence. These release periods are excluded from the outcome rates because they are not a reflection of behaviour on conditional release.

Sexual offences include all sexual offences listed in Schedule I of the CCRA.

Successful completion – supervision periods that are completed without any breach of conditions or a new offence. Among other end results, when an offender is serving an indeterminate sentence, successful completion occur when the offender decease.

Violent offences include first and second degree murder and non-sexual offences listed in Schedule I of the CCRA such as attempted murder, assault, abduction, extortion, robbery, firearms, and other violent offences such as uttering threats and criminal harassment etc.
