This information includes:

  • location of the correctional centre where the offender is imprisoned;
  • length of sentence;
  • any changes to the sentence;
  • any temporary absences;
  • details about any transfer of the offender from the correctional centre;
  • details about the offender escaping or otherwise being unlawfully at large and any subsequent apprehension;release date from custody;
  • the community where the offender is being released;
  • any other information that may be disclosed in accordance with the Corrections Regulations.

The program is administered by the Corrections service. All NWT correctional facilities have Victim Notification representatives.
