4.2 Methodology for Performance Targets

Please refer to the link below for the methodology for performance target setting information in this report.


1 The Annual Reference Level is the funding available to CSC for each year as approved by Treasury Board.

2 As a result of legislative changes, the number of inmates in CSC’s custody has grown and is expected to continue to increase over the next few years. However, the inmate population increases anticipated from the implementation of both the Truth in Sentencing Act and the Tackling Violent Crime Act have not materialized as originally predicted. CSC is working with central agencies to determine the financial impact; and as a result, funding may be returned or frozen within its existing reference levels. Furthermore, CSC hires staff based on actual inmate population and will not hire any new staff beyond what is required to effectively manage realized population growth while ensuring public safety results for all Canadians. As such, CSC will not spend all of its authorities.
