Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) About SLPP’s Community Residential Facility


Q: What is the wait time for a bed at SLPP?

A: We understand you are anxious to begin your reintegration process. However, we cannot guarantee a time frame due to the amount of planning that goes into the reintegration process. To find out where you are on the wait list, please have your Institutional Parole Office contact the Parole Supervisor.

Q: Will I be in a single room?

A: There are many criteria that are taken into consideration when deciding on room assignments. That being said, the vast majority of our population are in a shared room with individual beds.

Q: Are there curfews?

A: Yes, all residents have a curfew at SLPP. Curfews are based on many different criteria and will be discussed with your Care Team upon arrival. All residents are required to contact the CRF if they are away for more than 4 hours.

Q: Can I cook my own meals?

A: No. All meals are prepared by our full-time kitchen staff, offering residents three healthy meals per day according to Canada’s Nutritional Guidelines.

Q: Can my friends and family visit me?

A: Most definitely. Visiting hours are daily from 9:00am to 10:00pm, and all visitors are required to complete a CPIC and sign-in at our front desk. Visitors are not allowed in your room and MUST remain in the common areas.

Q: Can my children visit me?

A: Yes. SLPP understands the importance of family and keeping those connections strong. Children are permitted in the main areas of the building and may not spend visitation time in the facility without supervision of their parents/guardians, nor enter the room of any resident

Q: Do I have to attend programs?

A: Yes. If programs were proposed as part of your correctional plan, you will then be required to participate in programs offered by SLPP or any other provider in the local community.

Q: What can I bring to the CRF Upon Arrival?

A: Please bring bare essentials only. As furniture and cookware will not be utilized during your residency, we ask that you not bring them into the CRF. As you will be sharing a room and other living accommodations, you will be required to keep your space clean and clutter-free at all times.

Q: What happens to my medication?

A: SLPP’s medication access policy requires ALL medication to be registered and stored at the medication station. Medication at no time can be kept in rooms, and can only be accessed by staff.
