Conditions of release

Standard Conditions

All offenders released on conditional release must abide by a set of standard conditions. These include reporting to a parole officer, obeying the law and keeping the peace, not owning or possessing a weapon, and reporting any change in their family, domestic or financial situation to their parole officer.

Special Conditions

The Parole Board may also impose any special conditions it considers reasonable and necessary to further manage an offender's risk in the community, such as to abstain from the use of drugs or alcohol. The Board also takes into account requests from victims to impose special conditions. The most common request is for no contact with the victim or their family members.

If an offender does not abide by conditions placed on their conditional release...

If the conditions of parole are not met, the Parole Board of Canada (PBC) has the power to revoke the parole and return the offender to prison.
