Alternatives to Detention Program: CCR comments


In June 2018. the Canada Border Services Agency launched an expanded Alternatives to Detention (ATD) program “to provide risk-based, nationally consistent programming to individuals deemed suitable for release from detention”. The enhanced ATD program is a key pillar of the National Immigration Detention Framework (NIDF) which is designed to create “a better, fairer immigration detention system that supports the humane and dignified treatment of individuals while protecting public safety.”

These comments are a contribution to a review of the ATD program.
