Kept
16-Jun-2020
Justification

The Ontario government announced that it would invest $500 million in corrections over the next five years, with some funding allocated towards increasing the number of probation and parole officers. Between May 2019 and March 2020, 30 new probation and parole officers were hired. In the 2021 budget the government announced $23 million over two years to hire 50 additional probation and parole officers. The promise is therefore considered kept.

“The Ontario government is investing more than $500 million over five years to transform correctional facilities across the province. […] This major investment will support the hiring of more than 500 new staff to help address challenges within the correctional system such as mental health and addiction issues.”
