Submission to the Minister of Public Safety and Solicitor General Regarding Immigration Detention in Provincial Correctional Facilities

BC Office of the Human Rights Commissioner

This submission argues that international human rights standards indicate that immigration detention should never be punitive in nature and must not take place in facilities intended to house individuals accused or convicted of a criminal act. This submission further argues that the practice of holding immigration detainees in provincial correctional centres in B.C must end.
