Abstract:

The use of electronic monitoring is on the rise in Canada and around the world. The emerging application of this type of surveillance in a range of settings is attributable to the fact that electronic monitoring is considered by many as an additional working tool which complements traditional supervision methods. That said, research to date shows that electronic monitoring in and of itself is not a panacea and that its implementation must be carefully focused. The report is divided into two sections: the first focuses on the information gathered by the Committee on the use of electronic monitoring in the correctional setting, and the second on its use in the immigration setting. Each section presents a series of recommendations based on our observations.
