As a recent Global News investigation found, the probation system in this province is a joke - it’s a 9-to-5 operation that relies largely on the offenders promising to comply with their release conditions and rarely any compliance checks to make sure that they do.
   On an average day, the Ministry of Community Safety and Correctional Services is responsible for supervising about 44,000 offenders, which include those on probation, conditional sentences, parole and temporary absences. In a scathing 2014 report, Ontario’s auditor general found “probation and parole officers did not use effective measures to ensure that more stringent conditions imposed on offenders, such as curfews and house arrest, were enforced.”
