Independent Review of Ontario Corrections

Independent Review of Ontario Corrections


The Independent Review of Ontario Corrections (IROC) provides arm’s length advice and recommendations on reforming Ontario’s adult correctional system. IROC’s activities are independent of the government and guided by public Terms of Reference. The mandate, outlined in the Terms of Reference, is three-fold:

  • To provide a report with advice and recommendations on immediate steps that can be taken with respect to the use of segregation.
  • To provide a second report on further segregation reform as well as reform of Ontario adult corrections more broadly. This is to inform a Government Action Plan for release in 2017, which will include a phased implementation plan.
  • To work with the Ministry on developing a phased implementation plan.

The Independent Review Team is led by Mr. Howard Sapers, the province’s Independent Advisor on Corrections Reform. Mr. Sapers’ appointment began on January 1, 2017.
