Recidivism is the act of committing another crime or coming into conflict with the criminal justice system (CJS) again. It is an important measure of the effectiveness of CJS efforts to promote rehabilitation, reintegration, and public safety.

This fact sheet is based on publicly available data from the provincial governments of Ontario and Québec, the Correctional Service of Canada (CSC), Public Safety Canada (PSC), and Statistics Canada. The data were collected from 2001 to 2016.

Black people are overrepresented in Canada's criminal justice system as both victims and people accused
or convicted of crime. This fact sheet presents a statistical overview of the key areas of overrepresentation
of Black people at different stages of the criminal justice system. National disaggregated data on the racialized identity of those who come in contact with the criminal
justice system remain fairly limited and underreported. However, some information is available and
presented in the current fact sheet.

This fact sheet is based on two research publications from the Canadian Centre for Justice Statistics (CCJS) published in 2015 and 2018. In the 2015 Juristat, CCJS linked police-reported data from the Uniform Crime Reporting Survey to court data from the Adult Criminal Court Survey to identify intimate partner violence (IPV) cases and their outcomes. All figures noted in this JustFacts are based on police-reported information and therefore are likely an under-representation of the true scope of the problem.

This fact sheet presents information on Canadian federal offenders who were admitted to federal custody between fiscal years 2010/11 and 2019/20 for an offence punishable by a mandatory minimum penalty (MMP) as the most serious offence on sentence. Data were obtained from the Correctional Service of Canada. The primary aim of this research study was to examine whether Indigenous and racialized (i.e., non-White, non-Indigenous) offenders were differentially affected by MMPs over the ten-year period.

The dataset includes crime statistics at the provincial and police service levels. It is based on police reported incidents of crime reported through the Uniform Crime Reporting Survey (UCR). Statistics include the crime severity index, violent crime severity index, and non-violent crime severity index overall for provincial and police service levels. The Youth Crime Severity Index is based on the same principles as the overall Crime Severity Index, which reflects the seriousness of offences, but uses the number of youths accused instead of an incident count.
