July 18, 2022 – Abbotsford, British Columbia – Correctional Service Canada

On July 13, 2022, an inmate was the victim of an assault at Matsqui Institution, a medium-security federal institution. The injured inmate was evaluated by staff members and transported to an outside hospital for treatment. No staff members or other inmates were injured during this incident and the inmate has since returned to the institution.

A lockdown was put in place the following day to allow staff to conduct a search of the institution.  

The assailant has been identified and the appropriate actions have been taken. The Abbotsford Police and the institution are presently investigating the incident. The Correctional Service of Canada will continue to review the circumstances surrounding this incident and take the appropriate measures.

Visits are suspended until the search is complete, and normal operations will resume as soon as it is considered safe to do so.

The safety and security of institutions, their staff and the public remains the highest priority in the operations of the federal correctional system.
