From the outset of the COVID-19 pandemic, BC Corrections response has been swift and effective. Join Assistant Deputy Minister Elenore Arend and members of the senior management team for an overview of how the BC Corrections has adapted and shifted to protect the health and safety of the individuals in their care and staff on the frontlines.

Topics discussed will include the many impacts of COVID-19 on Community Corrections and Adult Custody in B.C., looking ahead at BC Corrections' plans to "restart" as public health restrictions begin to ease over the coming months, and how you - our partners in the judicial sector - are key to ensuring our continued success at keeping everyone safe as we move forward.

Specific topic areas of interest include the following:

  • Adult Custody procedures for in custody accused attendance at Court;
  • Defence Counsel Access to clients in custody;
  • Community Corrections client reporting procedures; and
  • Availability of and approach to Community Corrections case management programming.
