Agassiz– Correctional Service Canada
On November 1, 2016 at about 4 p.m., a lockdown was put in place at Mountain Institution (a medium security federal institution next to Kent which is maximum security), to enable staff members to conduct a general search.
The search was ordered to ensure the safety and security of the institution, its staff and inmates. Normal operations will resume as soon as it is considered safe to do so.
Visits have been suspended until the search is completed.
