The Honourable Michael Kerzner
Dear Minister Kerzner:
Re: Modernizing the Regulatory Framework for Searches of People in Custody in Ontario’s Adult Correctional Institutions
I hope this letter finds you well.
Attached is the Ontario Human Rights Commission (OHRC) submission to your Ministry’s request for public and stakeholder input on amendments to create an updated regulatory framework under the Ministry of Correctional Services Act (MCSA) for strip searches of people in custody in adult correctional institutions.
I look forward to an opportunity when we might meet to discuss the OHRC’s recommendations regarding the amendments and other human rights issues of mutual importance to our communities.
