Description (Service)

Probation is ordered by the courts and allows the offender to serve their sentence in the community, subject to conditions prescribed in a probation order.
In Ontario, probation officers in 121 offices supervise approximately 32,000 probationers on any given day.
Parole is a conditional release from a correctional institution. It permits an offender to serve the remainder of their sentence in the community under the supervision of a probation and parole officer.
The supervisory role of a probation officer and parole officer is to:

  • prepare reports for courts and the Parole Board
  • monitor and enforce probation and conditional sentence orders, and parole certificates
  • conduct comprehensive assessments
  • make effective case management decisions for offenders
  • determine rehabilitative interventions for offenders, for example, referral to internal or community-based counselling and treatment programs or other supportive services such as employment and housing
