Investigation Report on Use of Pepper Spray and Segregation in Manitoba’s Youth Correctional Facilities

Manitoba Ombudsman


This investigation was initiated in response to concerns raised in 2015 and 2016 by youth and youth criminal defence counsel with the Manitoba Advocate for Children and Youth, formerly the Office of the Children’s Advocate, about the use of pepper spray and segregation at Agassiz Youth Centre (AYC) and Manitoba Youth Centre (MYC).The advocate raised the concerns with our office. Our office reviewed AYC’s and MYC’s pepper spray and segregation use between September 1, 2015, to August 31, 2016, for compliance with the Correctional Services Act, the Correctional Services Regulation, policies and standing orders.
