Infrastructure Ontario is working with the Ministry of the Solicitor General to deliver a new Thunder Bay Correctional Complex, to replace the city’s existing jail and correctional centre.
The project will result in development of a 345 bed, multi-purpose correctional facility. This project supports the ministry’s strategy of replacing aging institutions to address health, safety and security issues, including efficiencies of design, technology and space. It will improve access to programming, living conditions and education, while also updating automation and technology. The correctional complex will be designed to meet the Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) Silver certification.
