Corrections and Conditional Release Act
Marginal note:Disclosure to offender
141 (1) At least fifteen days before the day set for the review of the case of an offender, the Board shall provide or cause to be provided to the offender, in writing, in whichever of the two official languages of Canada is requested by the offender, the information that is to be considered in the review of the case or a summary of that information.
(2) Where information referred to in subsection (1) comes into the possession of the Board after the time prescribed in that subsection, that information or a summary of it shall be provided to the offender as soon as is practicable thereafter.
(3) An offender may waive the right to be provided with the information or summary referred to in subsection (1) or to have it provided within the period referred to, but where an offender has waived that period and any information is received by the offender, or by the Board, so late that the offender or the Board is unable to sufficiently prepare for the review, the offender is entitled to, or the Board may order, a postponement of the review for such reasonable period as the Board determines.
(4) Where the Board has reasonable grounds to believe
(a) that any information should not be disclosed on the grounds of public interest, or
(b) that its disclosure would jeopardize
(i) the safety of any person,
(ii) the security of a correctional institution, or
(iii) the conduct of any lawful investigation,
the Board may withhold from the offender as much information as is strictly necessary in order to protect the interest identified in paragraph (a) or (b).
