Nanaimo Correctional Centre Replacement Project

Project Details

The replacement of Nanaimo Correctional Centre will be a purpose-built facility that enhances safety, security, and space to continue successful programs.

With a campus-style configuration to maximize use of the natural surroundings and views of Brannen Lake, the new centre will be designed to:

  • Maintain the 190-room capacity of the current centre (80 rooms for medium custody, 50 rooms for Guthrie Therapeutic Community and 60 rooms for secure and remand custody).
  • Add a new 12-room unit for short-term custody for women from Vancouver Island.
  • Offer modernized spaces for educational, vocational, certified trades and rehabilitative programming, plus specialized areas for food services, health care and working with those with complex mental health and other needs.
  • Enhance culturally responsive programming and spaces through collaboration with the Snuneymuxw and Snaw’Naw’As First Nations.

Site clearing for the new centre begins this summer and BC Corrections expects it will be operational by spring 2023.
